The fabulous geeks over at Google have struck again. The search engine giant is known for hiding humorous game-themed gags in their products and this is one of the best, in my opinion. Go to a Google search bar and using voice, search for “Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right.” And just like that, you’ll have unlimited free Google searches.

Of course this is tongue-in-cheek. It’s just the latest hidden gem discovered within Google’s tools.

The infamous Konami Code AKA Contra Code also unlocks an achievement in Google Play. Or try searching for “Do a barrel roll“. That’s my favorite as it’s a nod to StarFox.

For those of you who have no idea what this is or why the code is important. This series of buttons was a cheat code used in many classic Konami video games. For example, when used in Contra for the NES, it would unlock 30 extra lives. Essentially, it’s a piece of gaming history!
