    I thought Tesla's other extra ball was Aimed Shots and not raising the multipliers, along with the 12 experiments

    Also, during Secret Lab Multiball, you need to hit Left/Right ramps 2 times each, and the coil ramp once to access the Secret Lab hole for Super Jackpot
    Increasing jackpot value does so by 10K.

    Maybe mention that the magentic playfield 'magnets' need to be re-charged after using them. (Must wait about 1 second after using one)

    my deepest gratitude for the Earth Defence Guide! I tried to figure out by reading the table description in-game, unfortunately the german translation is horrible and barely makes sense. This helps me a lot (like your other guides)

    Just to let you know that on the El Dorado table there are actually two ways to light extra ball. One is by hitting the Monument orbit eight times (as you mentioned in your guide), the other way is by obtaining the Decoder artefact (one of the random awards you get by hitting the artefact ramp when lit). Both methods light Extra Ball on the Excavation orbit, which you can get by hitting the orbit up to three times.

    Hitting the Monument orbit four times and then repeatedly hitting the Excavation orbit will always net you a marble statue (600,000 points). The Unexpected Treasure award is different in that you get it by lighting up the JADE letters when Ball Save is already active, or hitting the hidden sink holes with both kickbacks already active. Unexpected Treasures award either 100,000, 200,000, 600,000 or 1 million points.

    Don't quote me 100%, but isn't the artefact which starts up the multiball mode called "Silver Ball", not "Money Ball"?

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    Regarding the El Dorado Guide; yeh I noticed that there was an Artefact called Decryption that immediately actives the Extra Ball Orbit. I didn't add that due to the fact it's a random award so I just noted the sure way to get it. Thinking about it I should have noted that.

    Default Thanks man!

    Wow, this was a huge help. I for the life of me could not figure out how to use the Cube on Paranormal. I could only get the Levitation multiball going. Now I see that you can change the lanes and use magnets to move the ball where you need it. I really wish these "guides" came with the game. I mean it's fun to learn stuff up to a point but some of these "moves" are quite obscure.

    These guides should come with the game. This way you can learn for yourself or get some help if needed. I just don't have the time these days to learn all the tricks on every table.

    Wow this is very high praise indeed m8, thanks so much for the kind words.. if not for this awesome Community that Zen has established then these Guides wouldn't be possible.

    Glad to see the Paranormal Guide helped ya get to grips with the Cube stuff, thats the end game of these Guides to help all Players enjoy Pinball to the fullest no matter your Skill... I hope these increase the Fun Factor!

    Yeh I've heard others say they would love them to be present in the Game, ay who knows maybe one day Zen will do just that.. you guys could always put that forward to them.

    Sensei ShoryukenToTheChin, I discovered something to be a little different than discibed in the pacha guide. (Actually a bit nervous now... Don't want to be a pain in the ass.. Don't know if it's important enough to speak up to the emperor😳😳😳 ) but it says that the pin in the middle shows up again after a few seconds... But it actually comes back when you hit one of the upper targets. At least on ps4 that is😊. I thought it might come in handy because you can get it to pop up sooner👍✌ again don't know if it's important enough 😳 but I'm only trying to help✌ 👊 greetings from a humble student ✌

    Keep in mind that the guide is based off of the Xbox 360 version of the table. It's possible Zen made a couple of minor changes when they released the table on PSN.

    So this is essentially CastleStorm in a nutshell.

    - Shoot right ramp followed by left ramp and then right orbit to score a Super Skill Shot.
    - Advance bonus multiplier by 3x for every 25 spinners.
    - Light kickbacks by amassing enough bumper hits.
    - Collect Extra Balls by activating The Conqueror, collecting a 10 hit combo, activating Sheep Them All, others?
    - Unlit drop target sinkhole alternates side orbit modes between Impair the Enemy or Shades
    - During Impair the Enemy shoot 20 Vikings
    - During Shades shoot enough of the Shades to light Jackpots
    - Shoot right orbit 3x in succession to start Prospering. Shoot lit shots to move them. When both lights are on one shot it will light for a Jackpot
    - Shoot lit center ramp at any time to start Castle Siege. Complete targets before they reset and try to bash the castle for big points (complete the mode by scoring at least 250k)
    - Complete BRUTUS or TAP KEG to light left orbit sinkhole. During former mode press flipper buttons randomly for points, during latter shoot the sinkhole for random points
    - Enough left slingshot hits light center ramp for Sheep Them Up, aim slingshot with the flipper buttons and launch sheep using launch button. Enough Viking hits lights Extra Ball
    - Complete STORM to begin Storm Hurry-Up - four major shots lit for increasing values. Shoot center ramp during this period to light the castle for increasing millions. Princesses worth double
    - Spell ARMS DRILL to begin two - ball Multiball where all points collected are multiplied by a value increased by the spinner
    - Spell SKY FALLS to light mode at scoop. During mode shoot lit shots but avoid burning too many balls.
    - Lock 3 balls by enough left target hits to light domination at scoop. Shoot center ramp then try and bash the tower at least 9 times in a 2-ball multiball
    - Complete any mode to light Truimph as a hurry up at the scoop. 2-ball multiball where you have to shoot flashing lanes to complete the mode and then score Jackpots
    - Light Meet the Chief by:
    --Activating Clear the Way by spelling CLEAR. Complete drop targets then shoot the hole behind them 3 times to complete
    --Saving a Viking Princess. Shoot targets followed by side target and then complete drops to complete.
    --Completing Domination (from earlier)
    - During mode shoot 6 Vikings then shoot Castle, do this process 3 times to complete
    - Once Sky Falls, Domination, Truimph, and Meet The Chief are complete, shoot scoop for extra ball and The Conqueror - multiball frenzy where all shots are lit

    Hopefully it isn't too complex to understand...
    Completed Tables:
    Spider-Man, Ms. Splosion Man, Captain America, Ghost Rider, Moon Knight, Sorcerer's Lair, Plants vs. Zombies, The Avengers, World War Hulk, Civil War, Return of the Jedi, Starfighter Assault, Super League Football

    Thanks for that Captain B. Zarre.

    Yeh I've started contructing the Guides for the Iron & Steel Pack. There have been some complications as my PS4 decided to developer a fault (thankfully I still had warranty), I should have a replacement with me next week. Also developed a throat infection so not a good few weeks, but its finally looking up.

    Sorry to hear you and your PS4 have been unwell STTC, hope you're both sorted soon.

    I'm guessing CastleStorm won't need to be one of the longer guides, in fact the in game guide pretty much sums it all up. I've been playing Timeshock! On my iPad a lot lately and it has got me thinking... It is a fairly basic layout with minimal ramps/orbits/flippers but the rules are just so deep and it is full of secrets that I'm still discovering even after all these years. I'm not having a dig at Zen's tables, there have been several with fantastic design and rules. I'm just trying to say I yearn for some more depth (including hidden secrets) and maybe less ramps etc.

    The in game guides are a good starting place (while we wait for the official guides). When A new zen table is released I play the game for a while then read the in game guide. Then I play the game until the official guide is released and after reading that go back in with a better understanding and instant improvement. This method works for me because I like a bit of the exploration aspect and figuring it out on my own, then when I read the guide it fills in some of the blanks.

    I like the tips that are peppered in the guides but I wish the forum would have a tips and tricks thread for each table (like TPA) so everyone can post them (collective hive mind) - like for example someone found a clever way to have chef get with 10 ladies in 45 seconds in super sweet pinball - that is proving to be seemingly impossible...

    Two mistakes regarding the Star Wars: Episode IV guide:

    1. The link says Episode VI
    2. Once you completed all the scenes you can hit the left orbit to start wizard mode straight away. Lighting Rebel again isn't neccessary.
