IKEA’s endless mazes are already games in themselves, but an anonymous pranker has taken things to the next level.
Twitter user Campbell Bird came across an assortment of punning IKEA-inspired covers of famous video games at the store in Sheffield. He decided to share a photo of them, and the tweet has gone viral since.
The image reveals four parody titles written in IKEA’s typeface, Verdana, that are branded with its logo: ‘Super MALM Bros.’, ‘ÄPPLARO’s Creed’, ‘Call of DROMA’, and ‘Grand Theft ALEX’.
“I would play the hell out of ‘Super MALM Bros’,” wrote a user. “Sven, your princess is in another department!”
Would you play these games in place of the puzzles that are IKEA instruction manuals?

What do you mean by "fake video game titles"? Are you telling me you've never played ÄPPLARÖ'S Creed before?— Richard Martin (@Zomby2D) April 30, 2018
Hell, the real Super Malm Bros. 2 was considered too hard even Japanese audiences. Sweden needs to hurry and release it for the world.— Country grizzly bear cowboy (@hunter_grizz) May 1, 2018
Grand Theft Alex is actually super accurate, just bought an alex and there's a drawer missing— Max le Daron (@maxledaron) May 1, 2018
