Step 1: "Askew"
Searching Google for "askew" or "tilt" will cause the search results to be displayed at a slight angle.
Step 2: "Atari Breakout"
Searching Google for "Atari Breakout" using Images will start a game of Breakout using the image results as bricks. When one wins, it searches something else randomly and plays again.
Step 3: "Do a Barrel Roll"
Searching Google for "Do a barrel roll" will cause the search results to rotate 360 degrees when showing.
Step 4: "Zerg Rush"
Searching Google for "zerg rush" causes a bunch of Google "o"s to attack the result page and eventually destroy it; the user can, however, fight back by tapping on them. After destroying the results, the "o"s then arrange themselves into 'GG', meaning "Good Game".
Step 5: "Bletchley Park"
Searching Google for "Bletchley Park" will cause the title of the info card to appear as if it was being deciphered by Google.
