In Neverball the player uses the computer mouse to control the slope of a labyrinth to navigate a ball through it. On the way through the labyrinth the player has to collect coins to be able to enter the next labyrinth. Neverball can only be played in single player mode.

Neverball uses OpenGL, which needs a graphics card capable of 3D acceleration.
