Topic: Trying to find a game similar to neverball- help?! :(

Hello, I played this game 5-6 years ago on my pc. I don't remember the name and have been trying to find it in any way possible, but unsuccessful... So it is a 9 level ball-ballancing game. You had to navigate the metall ball through the pkatforms in order to finish the level. The platforms were in outer space and you had to be very carefull not to fall off the platforms and into open space, coz that costed you a life. Each three leveles had the same theme. For example the first three levels were colorful, the next three were wooden and the last three were metal. There were also different floors- like icy and oil spill - to make the ball more difficult to control. Also there were arrows which made the ball faster, which was really helpfull when you had to make a big jump. The controls were simple- the arrows and space bar for jumping. Please help me find it...

Hey, we actually have a wiki page that lists some similar games. You may be able to find it there.

I know the game you mean, I have played it before. I believe it is a bit rough around the edges, and was released by Digipen (student project). If you go through the last 5 years of projects, you should discover it.

There is also the possibility that it was a free downloadable beta, but the name totally escapes me. Let me check my backups.

EDIT: was it this? ArchBall? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22au8GXhPKY

Re: Trying to find a game similar to neverball- help?! :(

Nope, it's neither of those... maybe I should specify that the platforms in space, were not in the clouds, but in outer space- you know dark with stars... smile Anyway I also remember the name of the game was just one word. I'll check their projects nevertheless, but the graphics were quite good (not like the two links you send me- they were more detailed). Thank you so much for answering! smile))
NOTE: I forgot to mention you can play multiplayer and screen was split horizontaly, so you could play at the same time

I believe I still know the game you mean. Did it have a pirate theme? (I mean, space pirates).

It had multi-player and multiple levels (and was a bit spacey).

I think it was a free download with free play, but you could buy new ball skins/weapons/powerups from the creators.

It isn't GooBall by Ambrosia is it?

it had only few levels, had jump, switches, and was set in space I believe (at least one level was).

Does this pic ring a bell?  -> http://www.insidemacgames.com/images/go … _large.jpg

if not, this movie shows the space level (for a second or two) http://www.ambrosiasw.com/assets/files/ … ooball.mov

This is sounding more and more like your game. Alas, I fear it has no multiplayer?!

Re: Trying to find a game similar to neverball- help?! :(

Nope, there were no weapons, no fighting... just a ball rolling and jumping. It wasnt a pirate theme either. It was really quite a simple game. I remember the name being something like bounce, but i have tried to find it that way and didn't succeed- the Bounce games I found weren't the one I was lookig for. Don't wanna confuse you though, I might have been wrong- after all it was more than 6 years ago big_smile but if you would help me find it, you would be the greatest person ever! smile Thanks for trying wink
PS.: I obviously can't find you a screen shot, but I can try and draw you one? big_smile

Goo Ball doesn't really have a pirate theme, but it does have a space/circus/desert theme levels.

Also, I don't believe there is split screen multiplayer, but I may be mistaken.

Oh, I also remember there was a time limit to each level - 3 mins, otherwise you lose a life. Also, the platforms were all straight - no turns, no going up or down - you just had to go forward (except if you were avoiding a wooden box or smth). And finally - I remember the last level (9th I think) at the end it was all jumps and arrows.
