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 features a replay recording system, which records gameplay in any level. Recording begins automatically when the level begins. Replays can be saved when a level is cleared, or when the ball falls off the level.
