Search for “Atari Breakout” in Google Image Search. Now.

Yes, it’s the new Google Easter egg. Today happens to be the 37th anniversary of the ball bouncing, brick breaking classic arcade game of the 70s. Watch as the image results become said bricks to break and you navigate a lone bar with your mouse or keyboard arrow keys to bounce a ball to break them in some simple and addictive game play.

This little feature also serves as a warm up  to the Google I/O developer conference this Wednesday in San Francisco. You can try other flash games on its home page by clicking on the “I” and “O.” Try these sequences for some games: “IIOIOOII,” “IIIOOIII,” and “IOOOOOOI.” Can you find any others?
