Scarabeus is a puzzle game where the player has to figure out the best path through a series of tiles without backtracking. The player has to cause all the black tiles to disappear, then land back on the starting tile. As the player reaches later levels, white tiles show up, which have to be walked over multiple times. It is theorized that Scarabeus is in black and white due to being a port of the Game Boy game, Pyramids of Ra, which is supported by the prototype cartridge's label reading "Pyramids of Ra - NES Version".
