Geocache Description:

Cache is not at the posted coordinates.
High muggle zone be cautious.

I was at an event talking to a very good puzzle cacher who said how much she loved playing my video game caches. She said, "I'm not any good at them, but they are such a welcome relief from typical mystery caches." We got to talking about different styles of Mystery caches and we got on the subject of bonus caches -- you know, find these caches and get clues to another. I even have one of those: TRC #1 - Decoder. But it got me thinking about movies, TV shows, video games and the Easter eggs that producers, directors, developers often hide in their games. So I thought, hmm. Why not do that myself. So, I updated all my video games to work with their original puzzle as well as this one. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a brief entry from Wikipedia.com about Easter Eggs:

"In computer software, Easter eggs are secret responses that occur as a result of an undocumented set of commands. The results can vary from a simple printed message or image, to a page of programmer credits or a small videogame hidden inside an otherwise serious piece of software. Videogame cheat codes are a specific type of Easter egg, in which entering a secret command will unlock special powers or new levels for the player."

Easter Eggs are all around us. While there are not cheat codes in this game, your task is to find 4 Easter Eggs I have hidden inside my latest puzzle game (as of when this cache published). One on each of the first four levels. Each Egg will reveal a piece of the code you need to enter into certitude to reveal the coords.
The first three you'll need a leap of faith in order to find.
The last one you'll need to do a little exploring.

Do you have what it takes to find the easter egg?
