Google Easter egg lets you play Breakout with pictures of Breakout


Well, we can once again thank Google for ruining our productivity. This time, the famous search engine celebrates the 37-year-old classic Breakout, which tasked players to destroy a bunch of blocks by bouncing a small ball around the screen. Yeah, it was a simpler time.

You can play the Google version by searching for images of “Atari Breakout.” This clever take on the breakout (ha) arcade hit uses the image search results as its blocks. Clear them all and you’ll move on to new levels that use more random pictures, like adorable chinchillas or pancakes.

Thanks to Reddit user Techchris, whose post originally alerted us to this awesome Easter egg.
