Check Point’s research team tried the April Fools snake game added by Google inside the Android and iOS Google Maps apps and, after failing to play it for as long as they wanted, they reverse engineered it, stuck an auto-play AI inside, and removed the “loss” factor altogether.
This happened because they were too busy researching cyber threats all day long to keep playing it for hours on end.
Seriously though, they just decided to hack it to make it look like they’re working. That and the fact that they were becoming more and more irked by the little April Fools game thwarting their record achieving efforts, made them go ham and reverse engineer it using browser-based remote debugging.
