We modified an open source version (called neverball) of the popular super monkeyball games so it can be played using a one switch mechanism, allowing severely physically disabled to enjoy playing this game.
See http://monkeyball.eelke.com/ for more details and downloads.
Edit: Apologies for posting a version that did not work due to some missing DLL's. Problem should be fixed now - Eelke
