Looking for Something to Do? Search 'Atari Breakout' in Google Images

Google has brought the arcade right to your image search window in its newest celebratory Easter Egg game.

For the 37th birthday of the classic Atari game Breakout, Google has taken a new approach opposed to the average doodles you see on their homepage.

If you go to Google and click images and search 'Atari Breakout.' It automatically turns your image search into the classic game, which you can play right on your browser.

The tiled images shrink down to form the layers of bricks, and the bouncing ball emerges from the bottom of the screen.

When you give it a few tries with either your mouse or keyboard arrow keys, you can share your score on your Google+ page, and learn more about  Atari Breakout.

This is just the beginning of the fun things Google will be rolling out this week to prepare for it's I/O event taking place from Wednesday until Friday.

You can stream the conference live HERE!

But until then, you should have enough time to keep yourself busy with this game.
