Google has one again shown its playful side. This time with another Easter Egg – the Google Rush!
It’s Friday, so why not waste a few minutes this morning with Google’s latest playable Easter Egg?
Typing “zerg rush” in Google.com seemingly returns the regular Google search results for this unusual term, but soon, little O’s (from the Google logo) start dropping from the top of the page.
Use your mouse to click and destroy the O’s – or zerglings – before they eat your search results and gather into two, large G’s on the page. At the end of the game, you can share your scores via Google+, telling followers how many zerglings you took down.
As described by knowyourmeme.com, the term Zerg Rush originates from the real-time strategy (RTS) game Starcraft. “The ‘Zerg’ race is notoriously known for its ability to mass-produce offensive units within a short time frame, thus allowing the player to overpower the opponent by sheer number,” the website said.
News of the game quickly made the rounds this morning, with “Zerg Rush” topping the trending topics on Google+ and Twitter as users urged friends to try it out.
My last score was 83. Wonder how others are fairing. I’m sure the there are way, way, waaaay high scores out there.
