How to Make Google Go Crazy

Introduction

Google is the most popular search engine there is. Major part of Internet users all over the world use it when they need to find some sort of information online.

There are certain phrases that Google takes as commands (it performs the search after it does a trick).

After you enter this phrase, you will see Google "O"s drop down, they will destroy the search results as they fall, to "protect" them, point mouse cursor and shoot the "O"s. In the end you will see the score at the top right hand corner. To stop the game and see the search results, press button that says "clear". If Google beats you at this game, its "O"s will arrange into two large "G" letters.

Tilt

Enter "tilt" if you want to incline the search results page.
