Easter Egg – Launch Atari Breakout From Google’s Image Search

When you hear the term “Easter Egg” in IT (information technology), it is referred to as a hidden feature or option in the software coding or program that cannot easily be revealed or found. For example, I can remember years ago if you entered a specific formula into a Microsoft Excel ‘97 spreadsheet a 3D flight simulation would load. There are actual sites devoted to these easter eggs (i.e. The Easter Egg Archive).

An easter egg of sorts that has become popular this past week is the 1970’s Atari Breakout Game that can be launched from the Google Image Search box.

Atari Breakout

To make this happen visit Google’s Image Search [ HERE ] . In the search box, type Atari Breakout and click on the Search Button. Wait a few secs and the game will load. You can use your mouse or the arrow keys on the keyboard to control the paddle. When you rack up your best score, you can share it on your Google+ page  from right  inside the game. You will also find a pause, play and sound button.
