Are you bored at work? Watching the clock with literally nothing to do? Are you a student looking for a new way to procrastinate finishing your thesis? We all turn to the Internet for better alternatives to all of the things we don’t want to do. As if Google doesn’t offer enough opportunities for distraction already, they’ve stepped up their game. You can now play Atari Breakout. FOR FREE!
Go to Google Images (www.google.com/images), and type “Atari Breakout” into the search bar. The screen will transform into a Breakout game complete with the sound effects and almost the same layout of the classic Atari masterpiece. We all love the holiday themed interactive search bars they come up with, but this is the best “Easter egg” they’ve given us yet.
Atari Breakout was created in the late 1970s, but anyone who grew up in the 80s or even the early 90s can recall plenty of hours in front of one of the earliest and most beloved video game systems. Atari was around long before Blizzard, 2K, and Electronic Arts, and it paved the way for all the modern games we know and love. Thanks to Google, you can now take a free 5-minute nostalgia trip anytime you feel like it.
The game will keep track of your high score, so you can start a friendly competition amongst friends or office mates. According to some Twitter boasts, Breakout aficionados have racked up to 2,000 points. Get on top of those bricks! It will be 5:00 before you know it.
