Fun with Google.

Click this link: https://www.google.com/search?ei=3MRiXf ... 3MedcBeyLY

Now click on Thanos' glove (the same one I have in this red square).

Rinse and repeat:

Click this link: https://www.google.com/search?source=hp ... CAc&uact=5

Click the Red Shoes.

Wait for it to finish.

Now click the Tornado.

Anyone know of others?

EDIT: Actually found a pretty good list... but this one doesn't include the above.

Well, there's always this: the google cricket doodle.

And actually, you can walk from the Shire to Mordor. (It'll just take 189 hours). :P

Type "Zerg rush" into google and try to keep it from eating your page.

Or type “atari breakout google” into the google bar to start up a game of breakout!

There are others, I''m sure... ;)

Nice! The text is actually "atari breakout" in Google Image Search. The images turn into a breakout game. After completing a level it does a new "search" and create a new level from a random entry - I went from Atari Breakout to quinoa to Cologne to Abu Dhabi to Borschtsch to Chicago but that's where I snuffed it.

It aggravates me that the ball speed goes from very slow to very fast in just over a second. It's not fair on the player. You could be following the ball, veeeeeeeeeeerrryyyy sloooowwwlllyyyy ... thereitgoes! Oh darn, I lost a ball!

I'm also not sure how it did that for you, BBP. I got the same "Atari" level regardless of how far I got. It became boring after a while.

I just went from Atari to Mayonnaise to Volcanos to Bananas.

The speed change don't have to do with the programming. It goes slower when your computer has to think hard. If you use the arrow keys, your browser "selects" one of the pieces (you can tell because numbers appear in the block).

Shoddy programming seems to be an Easter Egg thing; or sooner the other way round - the few people who are going to see it aren't worth the effort of a throroughly programmed game.
