【Fun Fact】Android 14 Easter Egg - Interstellar Exploration

Level 10

Android almost every version will have the existence of Easter eggs, and the new Android 14 is no exception.

The new Easter egg is an exploration-type mini-game, and it's probably the favorite Easter egg for the author so far in the Android series.

It should currently exist in all Android 14 systems, and there's no need to deliberately use the Beta version.


To Infinity... and Beyond

1. Sequentially click on "Settings" => "System" => "About phone" =>

2. Then tap "Android version" three times in a row, and you'll see this screen:


Hold down the circular icon, and you'll feel a vibration through your fingertips.

This is the roar of the rocket thruster, with the stars in the background dragged into remnants. At this moment, you are accelerating into the unknown cosmic space.

Suddenly, the vibration stops abruptly, the icon disappears, and everything returns to silence.

In the pitch-black screen, a white spaceship appears, and meaninglessly flashing text appears in the upper left and lower right corners of the screen.

No prompts, no sound effects, only your own exploration journey begins like this.


Game Instructions:

This game has no endpoint and no rewards.

You pilot a spaceship, exploring a completely new and unknown galaxy.

The simple graphics fully depict the vastness of the universe.

You can pilot the ship aimlessly or carefully explore unknown galaxies.


Game Tips:

This is an exploration-type game.

It's recommended to set your own exploration goals and try to understand the information on the screen for enjoyment.

If you're puzzled and need hints, the author has prepared a few stages of hints for your reference.

To avoid spoiling the fun of the game, the following text needs to be highlighted to be visible.


Stage One - Navigation

The spaceship is easy to control; clicking anywhere on the screen and sliding will make the ship accelerate in that direction.

In the upper-left corner of the screen, "STAR" displays the name of the galaxy you are in.

Galaxies are randomly generated, and occasionally, names from past Android versions may appear.

The number displayed in the upper-left corner under "BODIES" indicates the quantity of stars in this galaxy and how many you've already landed on.

For example, 0 / 6 means there are six planets in this galaxy, and you haven't landed on any of them yet.


Stage Two - Locating Stars

In the lower-left corner, "POS" indicates your coordinates within this galaxy.

This is a two-dimensional plane universe, where coordinates (0, 0) represent the position of stars in this galaxy.

As long as you keep moving towards coordinates (0, 0), there will be a sun waiting for you.

Once you've found the location of a star, discovering planets within the galaxy should not be difficult.

If you've independently deciphered the meaning of coordinates, it's recommended to continue exploring.


Stage Three - Trajectory

The lines on the screen all have meaning.

The grid lines are for you to confirm your direction of travel.

The trajectory of the ship's navigation is represented by light green dashed lines.

As the distance increases, the old trajectory dashed lines will have larger gaps, allowing you to judge the newness of the navigation path.


Stage Four - Gravitational Fields

The red circles represent gravitational fields, and the more red circles surround you, the greater the gravitational pull.

The ship's navigation direction will be offset by the influence of gravity.

With proper control, the ship can continuously rotate around planets and stars, which is quite interesting.


Final Stage - Discovering Planetary Orbits

Planets will always revolve around stars.

As long as you can find a star in the galaxy, sailing outward will inevitably lead you to discover other planets.

The orbits of planets are marked with solid blue-green lines.

Follow these trajectories to discover planets and land on them.

In the end, you can find all the planets.
