Atari Breakout: Google Image Search Easter Egg Marks 37th Anniversary

by at . Comments

Google is commemorating the 37th anniversary of the classic Atari game Breakout with an awesome Easter egg, so to speak, within its Image Search.

All you need to do is run an image search on "Atari Breakout."

When you do, your results will be displayed and organized into a Breakout-style game, which requires the player to demolish brick walls with a ball!

Atari Breakout

The 1976 game was a takeoff on the 1972 game, Pong.

Yes ... Pong. The single-bit mother of all video games.

The best part? Google's tribute is playable. And as addicting as the Atari version. We recommend checking it out two minutes before you have to go somewhere.

That way you won't waste hours playing.
