A Quick List of the Best Google Easter Eggs

Updated on February 7, 2014

Google Easter Eggs

If you thought of Google as just another search engine then think again. Here are some of the craziest stuff you never know you could do with Google.

Play Pacman

If you are a retro gamer, then Google has something you would totally love. On May 21, 2010, Google introduced its special Doodle to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic game of Pacman. You can play the game with your mouse or by using the arrow keys. There's even a button to insert coin, so you can relive the moments in the gaming zones of the 80's.

Talk to a Martian

While Google Earth has a number of amazing Easter Eggs buried in it, this one is probably the coolest of them all. Many people know that Google Earth has a new feature that allows users to explore Mars much like you would do on Earth with Google Earth.

The 'The Talk to a Martian' feature is activated by opening Mars in Google Earth and typing in Meliza in the search box. This will take you to a placemark labeled “MELIZA“. Click on that and the placemark bubble will open and start talking to you.

The program is based on an old computer application called “Eliza” which simulates talking to someone. Surely something worth a try.

Gravity

'Gravity' is one of the most famous Easter Eggs on Google. Just go to the search page and type in gravity. Hit the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button and everything on the page falls apart as gravity takes over. Totally useless, but do try it out.

Google in 1998

Believe it or not, Google can get you back in time. Type in 'Google in 1998' and see Google take you back in 1998 when the search engine giant was born. The page changes to what Google looked like in 1998, giving you a glimpse of Google in the last millennium.

Answer to life, the universe and eveything

Google is the biggest search engine in the world and probably has answers for every question you could imagine. Don't you believe me? try if Google has the answer for the most important question in the world. Ask Google 'the answer to life the universe and everything' and Google answers you with 42. The answer is actually from a book named 'The hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy' by Douglas Adams in the answer was calculated by an enormous supercomputer over a period of 7.5 million years.
