Excellent find.

Does anyone else find these 'easter eggs' a bit childish? Why wouldn't Kobo just have another category called 'Games' or a more generic 'Apps' and place these two in that category? Those who don't like them can hide them while others can enjoy them without needing a map to find them.

Just a suggestion for the next update, Kobo. Don't hide your hard work making these games.

Maybe they're gauging customer response... I think it's a cool distraction.

Disclaimer: I don't work for or personally know anybody at Kobo. Just sayin'.

Ooh, yeah, there they are! I guess once I got to "Advanced", I saw the "Factory Reset" button, and it scared me, so I backed off.

Yeah, unfortunately. But on the other hand, if you follow that Easter Egg, you might gain valuable skills which you might put to use in Vegas, making lots of money which will enable you to buy lots of chocolate, which you can eat while reading lots of books on your kobo. Could be all good, no?
