If you were lucky enough to get a Sega Master System when the system launched in 1986 but weren't lucky enough to get any games for it, no worries! The SMS had its own Easter egg built into the system: a game called "Snail." The boot-up screen for the Sega Master System told you to turn the system off and insert a cartridge. If you ignored this and held the up button, as well as both the A and B buttons, the screen would slide to the side, revealing Snail. The objective was to navigate the little snail through a maze, from start to finish, within a certain time limit. Each level, the maze would get more difficult, and the time would get a little faster. If you died at any point, you'd have to start Snail over again from the beginning.
