Word (Microsoft) Easter Egg - Space Invaders
(Note: this game only works on Microsoft Word 99. If you don't have it, it is avaliable for download on the internet. Also, this may work on later versions of Word. I'm not sure.)
You will notice this egg is similar to the Microsoft Word 97 Pinball game. The developers at microsoft made this game EXTRA HARD to access. Expect to make a few mistakes when trying to get into it. To get this to work, you need to do EXACTLY what is said below...
First, open a new word document and type: "/dos:cur44="
(without the quotation marks)
Next, highlight the words you typed, and go to format > font
set the font to bold, and colour red
hit enter 3 times
insert the symbol (from symbol menu, under normal text): "±"
now go to Help, then About Microsoft Word
hold "shift, control, M"
while holding, click on the product licence key box.
A window should appear (similar to an error window) with the heading: "Word Invaders", with a note below the heading saying: "/dos:cur44="
you will notice that this is what you typed earlier.
the window does not have any OK button, so instead type "play" on the keyboard
you should now be playing the game "Word Invaders"!! Have fun!!!
Spread the word and
if you like this Egg!
