Just punch ‘Zerg Rush’ into the search tab and you will find yourself defending your search results before these zerglings ‘eat them up’. Colored in red and yellow, they try to leave no trace of your results. If you want to eliminate them, just click on them repeatedly. This will save your search engine results completely.

You will also find Google keeping a score. On the right side of the screen, a widget shows the number of enemies you killed along with the number of clicks you used to kill them. If you are unsuccessful at this, your results are wiped out by the yellow and red colored Os, assembling to form a ‘GG’. You can either share your scores within your Google + circles or clear the game to go to the search results.
