Tilt the floor to roll a ball through an obstacle course and collect coins before time runs out. Neverball is part puzzle game, part action game, and entirely a test of skill. The current version of Neverbal features over 140 challenging levels divided into six sets. Bonus levels can be unlocked by playing "challenge" mode. Neverball also supports mouse, keyboard, gamepad and joystick input. Please see the in-game Help screen for playing instructions. Our official forums can be found at nevercorner.net along with the Nevertable, an online "Hall Of Fame" where replays can be uploaded and shared with the community.

Over the years, Neverball has been adapted for a lot of purposes by a lot of different people. Most recently, we've heard that somebody has been working on bindings to allow Neverball to be controlled via a Kinect 3D motion sensing device.

Last week, Julian let us know he was working on Kinect bindings for Neverball. His project, called NeverKinect, is a work in progress, but is already usable. NeverKinect can be seen in action in a video on Julian's blog, where links to source code can also be found.

Exciting stuff!

Interesting! I'd never seen that before.

I'm hoping to do a series of short articles highlighting stuff that people are doing with Neverball, so if you know of anything else we might have missed, let us know :D
