“Zerg Rush” Invades Google Search Results

April 28th, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Netizens have reported about the latest Easter Egg found in Google.com. Type in “zerg rush” on Google.com and you see what appears to be your usual search results, that is until the small O’s from Google’s logo start crawling from all sides of the page.

Your mission is to click the O’s repeatedly until their life bars diminish. However, you need to do it quick before the O’s outnumber your cursor and eat every part of the page or before they gather into two large G’s.

You can share your scores on Google+ (no Twitter and Facebook options, as expected), informing your circles how many enemies you have defeated.

News outlets reported that this Easter Egg could be in conjunction with the upcoming “Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm” PC game expansion pack. Zergs are one of the alien races players can choose to control in the game. They are notorious for producing a hoard of offensive units within a short time frame. This allows the player to overwhelm the opponent with sheer numbers.

Google has been surprising us with Easter Eggs over the years, such as typing terms like askew, do a barrel roll, and anagram; each delivering amusing results. Other Google Easter Eggs require disabling Instant Results on Settings, then type Google Gravity before clicking the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button.

There were also hidden surprises in Google that were only available for a limited time, like the search result after typing “Is Enrique Iglesias gay?” or inputting a math equation to come up with a blue heart on a graph.

What other “treasures” would we be able to find on Google.com? Let’s search some more to find out!
