We have had the demo version of Neverball for a few days now so I was excited to finally see it in the Installer! When you open the application, you will get a main menu with the options; Play, Replay and Help. The menu can be tricky to navigate but, you will get the hang of it after a few tries. If you select the Help option, you will get a screen explaining how to play Neverball. Some of the important points are that you can change the view of the game, while playing, by tapping in the Top Left for Chase View, Top Middle for Lazy View and Top Right for Manual View. You can also rotate the camera by tapping in the lower left or lower right of the iPhone screen. The Replay option will display a list of the replays you have saved. Just select the replay you would like to watch. When it is finished, you have the option to Keep or Delete the replay.
The Play option will bring you into the game where you can then choose Neverball Easy, Neverball Hard or Mehdi’s Levels. Each of these options will have a list of the available levels, Best Times and Most Coins. On the right, you can see a screenshot of each level by tapping on the level number. You can select a level by tapping on it again. Once you have won/lost, you will get a screen displaying the number of coins you received, your score, number of balls, Best Times and Most Coins. You also have the ability to go to the next level, retry that level and save a replay.
I will say that it takes a little bit of time and practice to get used to the controls on this game. I found that it can be difficult to change the views (Chase, Lazy, Manual) while in the game…it gets a little glitchy. Every 5th time you open the application, you will get a pop-up asking you to make a donation. You will need to select the Ok button in order to open the application again. If you select Not Today, it will close the app. Overall, Lazrhog has done an great job of porting this app! You can get Neverball through the BigBoss source.
Watch “Neverball” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
