The main gameplay of Neverball
is based on moving a ball using gravity by tilting the game world, not directly controlling the ball (it is somewhat similar to the game Labyrinth
without the holes in the middle). The level must be tilted to help guide the ball to a goal, via an obstacle course, with a set time limit. Moving platforms and other objects get in the way, making levels progressively harder.
Several camera modes are available to help the player guide the ball, including chase camera, allowing the player to move along with the ball, and a manual camera, allowing the player to move the camera around, unhindered.
To unlock the goal on each level, the player must collect a required amount of coins. Coins come in three different colors: yellow, red and blue, each having the values one, five, and ten, respectively. Collecting 100 coins in "Challenge Mode" gains an extra life.Neverball
