If you're looking for screenshots of Atari's 1976 blockbuster Breakout, you may be in for a surprise today. Typing "atari breakout" into Google Image Search will return a fully playable version of the game, where the images are rendered as breakable blocks.

The original version of the game was developed by a pre-Apple Steve Wozniak after his friend Steve Jobs promised Atari founder Nolan Bushnell that he could deliver a prototype in just four days. While this Google version may not have quite as storied a history, it stands out as one of the more elaborate Easter eggs we've seen from the search giant.
