Google teased the Easter egg on Friday with this tweet:

The game is just as hard as Flappy Bird. But instead of controlling a bird, you get to navigate a tiny Android robot through various Lollipop-filled stages. To access it, go to the Settings menu, scroll all the way down to About Phone, and then tap the Android Version field five times.

The goal is to avoid hitting the lollipops, instead of hitting them like I did.
