Although Google is known for being a famous search engine used for research purposes, research is not the only thing Google is well known for. Google has hidden games that you can find throughout. Some of these hidden games are Google Pac-man, Atari breakout, and the well-known offline dinosaur game, T-Rex run. There is a simple and easy way to find each of these fun games!  

Google Pac-man: 

Many people play this game on their free time. To find Google Pac-man, all you have to do is search “Google Pac-man” in Google chrome. To play Pac-man, you use the arrow keys at the bottom right of your keyboard. The point of the game is to eat all the pellets to reach the next level, but it isn’t that easy. You must avoid getting eaten by the ghosts! That’s right! There are four ghosts that follow you, and if they manage to touch you, you lose a life. You have three lives.  If you eat a power pellet, the ghosts temporarily turn dark blue, and you can eat them to gain more points! Each ghost has a different way of trapping you into losing a life! You can also collect cherries to earn more points.

Atari Breakout

BREAK THE BOX: First level of Atari Breakout. Valeria Hansen, 8th grade, says, “It looks challenging and fun as well as addicting.”

Atari Breakout is another well-known game found on Google Chrome. To find this one, search Atari Breakout and click on images. This will quickly turn into a game where you must keep the ball in the air and

knock it into all the boxes. When the ball hits a box, that box disappears! After the ball hits a box, it bounces back down again, so be ready! To move the bar, all you need to do is move your cursor. You can move it all throughout the game. You get a total of four lives in Atari Breakout. Another fun feature of this game is that if you break all the bricks, you move onto another level with different pictures. For example, when Lauren Hitchcock, 8th grade, once played to level two, the theme was giraffes. But when she did it again, the theme was coffee. The themes are completely random!

T-Rex Run:

T-Rex run is a game you can play when you are offline. This is a popular game because you can play it anytime. To start the game, open the Google reload screen and press the space bar. This enters you into the game. In this game, you control the dinosaur. There are obstacles, like cacti, that you must jump over, and birds you must duck under. To jump, either press the up arrow on your keyboard or the space bar. To duck, press the down arrow. If you play long enough, your dinosaur will turn white, and the background will become black. Click this link to play T-Rex run while online:  https://apps.thecodepost.org/trex/trex.html
