However, do remember to scroll down as they come from the bottom as well (a mistake I made).

5. Play Atari Breakout

Another game you can play is Google Search. However, this time it’s the Google Image Search where you can play the game. Just go to Google Image Search and type “atari breakout”. When you press enter, all the images on the first page will turn into bricks and the breakout game will start. You can move the slider with the mouse cursor to prevent the ball from dropping.

Type “Conway’s Game of Life”  in Google search to see the magic.
