Searching for "Atari Breakout" and then clicking Images will start a game of Breakout using the image results as bricks.
Searching for "Do a barrel roll" or "z or r twice" will cause the search result to rotate 360 degrees when showing. This is often connected with Nintendo's Star Fox games.
Searching for "zerg rush" causes a bunch of Google "o"s to attack the result page and eventually destroy it; the user can, however, fight back by clicking on them. After destroying the results, the "o"s then arrange themselves into two capital 'G's, representing the acronym for "good game".
Searching for "Bletchley Park" will cause the title of the info card to appear as if it was being deciphered by Google. This is a reference to the fact that Bletchley Park, inMilton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, was the central site of the United Kingdom's Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), which during the Second World Warregularly penetrated the secret communications of the Axis Powers.
Searching for "kerning" will increase the spacing between every letter in the word kerning by 1 pixel whenever it shows up in the search results page.
