Google’s Zerg Rush Easter Egg


I had earlier written about Google’s Easter Eggs, but the one I found about today was too good to resist.

For the uninitiated, Zerg is a race in the hit Blizzard series – Starcraft (its a RTS). In both Starcraft and Starcraft II, there is a common Zerg strategy of Rushing. A rush is where you send in a small squad of soldiers early on in the game to wreck havoc in your opponents economy. The Zerg Rush is particularly effective since you can execute it within the first 3 minutes of the game.

OK, now back to this post, heres what you do –

  1. Go to Google.com
  2. Type in Zerg Rush
  3. Watch as a swarm of Google O’s attack your search results!
  4. Defend against the swarm and See how many can you get before your search results are wiped out

I did 61 :)
