How to Play “Zerg Rush” on Google

Founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998, Google is the most popular search engine today.

The search engine is known to have a myriad of easter eggs.

They contain hidden messages, inside jokes, secret games, and more.

If you’ve been using Google for a while, you’ve probably encountered one.

However, easter eggs are not easy to find because they are not added to popular searches.

That said, a popular easter egg is the “Zerg Rush” easter egg on Google Images.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to play the Zerg Rush game on Google, what is it, and whether the Easter egg is removed.

It’s about aiming a lot of your units at the enemy to overpower them.
