OpenOffice Easter Egg: Space Invaders


While reading an article on, I came across a fun feature hidden in OpenOffice. Unfortunately this feature isn’t a button you press to make it as fast as Gnumeric

Run’s Calc (found here), and enter =GAME(“StarWars”) exactly that way into any cell in your blank worksheet. When you  do, a window pops up with a simple space invaders game, for the wasting of your time.

True, a much better version of the classic Space Invaders could be found elsewhere on the web as a flash game. But on a network where these types of sites are blocked content, it could… come in handy? Personally I’ve always preferred  Galaga.

Then again, OOo most likely would not be implemented in a corporate/education environment. Not to generalize. 😀
