What do you mean by open? There are lots of ways to access and manipulate bam files. Samtools is one of the most popular, but there are also many language-specific libraries (for example RSamtools). Which approach is right for you largely depends on what you want to accomplish. Without that information, we're just guessing.

NGS viewers reviewed covers clients, and it includes a "most resembles what video game" section for each viewer. Worth a read.
