Most people who have used or are using Google Chrome would be all to familiar with Rex, especially so when your Internet goes down because then he’ll appear. But while many of us hurry to reset the router or try other means and ways to get the Internet back on, there’s actually a hidden secret behind Rex that many do not know of!

The last thing anyone would think of when the offline screen pops up would be to hit the “Spacebar”, but once you do so, Rex actually comes to life in an endless running game! Controls are simple (just press spacebar) and your only goal is to avoid hitting any cacti along the route.

The game tracks your progress and high score, but once your Internet gets back up or if the window closes or gets refreshed, the stats will all be lost. It’s a pretty straight-forward little game that would be good enough to tide you through till your Internet gets back up, but if that’s not something you want to do, by all means try to get your Internet up and running in the same amount of time as it take for you to play a game.
