Ten emergency games that you will find on an Android mobile, without installing anything (and some extra)



There are times when you need to relax or distract yourself with a game on your mobile, but just at that moment you do not have any games installed on your mobile. Finding and installing an interesting game is a good option, but if you are looking for something faster and without installing anything, the good news is that you already have several games on your Android mobile.



We have called them the emergency games: small games that are integrated into various Android applications that you may have on your mobile and that, in many cases, do not even need an Internet connection. And, sometimes it is time to play Genshin Impact, and other times it is enough with Dino Run.






Dino Run in Google Chrome



Dinorun


Dino Run is the popular dinosaur minigame built into Google Chrome and appearing when you run out of internet connection. To play, you need to touch on the dinosaur that appears above the error message, although you can also access it when you are connected, entering chrome://dino/.

Google's jumping cloud



Cloud


Like Google Chrome, the Google app has its own minigame that appears when you lose your internet connection. Is about a flappy bird clone in which you take control of a jumping cloud that must avoid the birds that are on the way.



This minigame is accessible when you do a search in the Google application and there is no Internet conection, at which point a cloud icon is displayed in the error message. Of course, it must be a time when you have run out of Internet connection, because if you simply activate airplane mode, the error is different and the minigame does not appear.



Hot Air Balloon on Google Play

One of the latest Easter egg minigames that Google has introduced in its applications is Hot Air Ballon, on Google Play. Like the previous two, this minigame appears when you are without an Internet connection, in Google Play, although it is not yet active for all users.



The concept of the game is similar to the two previous minigames. You control a balloon that goes up without stopping, and you must move it by sliding sideways to dodge spike platforms, while collecting coins.



The Android Easter Egg

If you have an Android mobile, you have an easter egg. Depending on the version of Android you have, you will get a different Easter egg. Those of the most recent versions of Android are somewhat more incomprehensible (Android 11 is a game of collecting kittens and Android 10 is a nonogram), but in an emergency, any game is welcome.



The minigame in question varies, but the way to activate it is almost always the same: go to the System Information section of the settings and touch several times on the android version. This will show the logo of that version of Android, on which you must touch several times to open the minigame.
