Play Atari Breakout on Google’s Image search

Google is commemorating 37 years of the Atari’s famous game Breakout, which was introduced way back in April 1976, by letting users play the game on Google’s Image Search.
Simply click on Images in Google Search and then type Atari Breakout. The Image search results will then align into blocks and a little easter egg at the bottom for you to play the game.

You get five lives to play the game and at the end you can post your score to Google Plus if you want. Frankly speaking its addictive and its unlikely you will get any work done once you start playing.
Incidentally, the task of designing Breakout’s prototype was given to Steve Jobs, who nicely passed it on to his friend Steve Wozniack, who ended up completing it in 42 days. More on that here.
