New Beetle Tracks and Gaps New Beetle Tracks and Gaps is a German-only promotional game for the New Beetle.

It is a modified remake of Stone Age, in which you must get your new yellow Beetle from one end of the map to the other using movable platforms and setting them up in advance to make the journey possible. The movable platforms will move only to the direction pointed by arrows marked on them (up, down, left, right, up and down, left and right and all four directions). Some levels will also display keys (sometimes cards or tools) required to unlock some passages. Some blocks will crumble after the player passes over them and some other will work as teleporters.

Each level has a time limit to be completed, and the lesser time the player takes, the more points he earns. The player has 5 lives and each level has a password. [source:mobygames]
