In the realm of nerdy Easter Eggs, the Konami Code is a long-time favorite. It shows up in various games and websites, offering a bit of nostalgia each time. Leave it to Google to have a little fun with the Konami Code on Android. Just a few swipes, and you've unlocked a secret achievement in the new Google Play Games app.

In the Google Play Games app, simply swipe the following directions: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right. The app will then provide you with a button popup to finish up the code with B, A, Start. For your trouble you get an achievement called "All your game are belong to us." This is, of course, a reference to the Sega Mega Drive game Zero Wing. Oh Google, two retro gaming references in one Easter Egg? You spoil us.

The video above provides a nice little demo of the secret code in action. As near as we can tell, it doesn't refill you life or provide extra continues.
