Entering “Do a barrel roll” and other such key words can have an interesting effect on your Google search page. Now, Google has released a new Easter Egg where, when you type “Zerg Rush” into Google’s search, you are launched into a minigame where you have to defend your page from a zerg rush!
For those of you are unfamiliar with the term, the zerg are a playable race in the game Starcraft. In the game, a so called “zerg rush” is an early-game strategy where you utilize a lot of cheap units that swarm your opponents. The APM that you see is “Actions Per Minute,” a very popular measurement in professional gaming. The best pro gamers for StarCraft have about 250-300 Actions Per Minute.
Most likely, this is just a nod towards Blizzard and the StarCraft 1 and 2 series. I’m pleased being a big StarCraft fan myself… though I like my Protoss.
