Neverball is a 3D platform game similar to Super Monkey Ball. It is currently available for Windows 2000/XP, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, Sega Dreamcast and iPhone OS. Neverball is free software under the GNU General Public License.
Neverball features other challenges such as collecting as many coins as possible within the time limit, or just to see how quickly the player can finish a level. Easy, Medium and Hard high scores are available for each and every level.
Three camera modes are available at the press of a key. Pressing F1 switches to the Chase Camera, which rotates to follow the ball quickly and closely. Pressing F2 switches to the Lazy Camera, which is the same as the Chase Camera, but responds slower. Pressing F3 switches to Manual Camera, in which the camera will only rotate when you press the specific buttons for it (default is left/right mouse buttons).
Neverball features a replay recording system, which records gameplay in any level. Recording begins automatically when the level begins. Replays can be saved when a level is cleared, or when the ball falls off the level. Currently, up to 64 replays can be saved.
Neverball has relatively high system requirements for smooth play, but it is possible to lower the resolution, the graphics and sound compression to get Neverball running faster on more modest systems. A processor that runs at least 1000 MHz, and a good graphics card are recommended for fast running gameplay.
Neverball comes with an additional miniature golf companion game using the same physics, called Neverputt, which comes with 3 course packs ranging from Easy to Hard. The current release of Neverball (1.4.0) has removed the ability to play Neverputt levels inside Neverball.
