A listing for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream briefly appeared on Xbox Game Pass, but what looked like an erroneous app was actually a rudimentary shooting gallery in disguise.Titled XBET_Test_Product_4, the game appeared on Xbox Game Pass with an icon picturing a tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

Several Reddit(opens in new tab) users shared the listing, which was nestled among the usual roster of Game Pass titles.Downloading the app opened a simple shooting mini-game that could be played on touchscreen devices.

The game was untitled, although the words “DirectX first-person game sample” were in the top left corner, alongside a “Windows platform samples” watermark.

The game appears to have been added to Game Pass by mistake and has since been removed.
