Beetle Run is a single player, shareware, maze like puzzle game with an educational twist because at the start/restart of each level a beetle related fact is displayed.

The game is played on a 6x6 grid. In each cell are pieces of road or track which the player can rotate by clicking on them. The contents of the cells changes with each replaying of a level. The game starts with the beetle being positioned in one cell, from that point the player has six seconds before the game starts. The objective of the game is to keep the beetle moving for as long as possible.

Points are scored for each cell the beetle passes over, specific cells that score bonus points and, in later levels, there are special bonus paths. The player must attain a predefined level in order to progress to the next. The game can be speeded up and the when that happens the point scores are doubled.
