To win a fight easy, use left flipper and shot a bal on blanka ramp, to get projectiles... then use the end of right flipper to shot in the left holl. Sorry for bad english.

Great work on making this guide, very useful as this game has the worst trophy descriptions ever, it's impossible to figure out what to do just reading the descriptions.

However, some trophies are so complex, even with your explanation, sometimes it's hard to get exactly what to do. Couldn't you (or someone else reading this) make (or find) videos showing how to get the trophies? I found some videos, but not all the trophies. With those videos and your descriptions, I managed to get half the trophies of this game, way easier this way.

Here are the videos I found, it would be really nice if someone complete the list with videos of the remaining trophies, shown as "N/A"!

V12 Table

Nitro Booster

Turbo Charger

Manifold - N/A
Monkey-wrench - N/A

Tesla Table


Bunch of Dollars

Tesla Coil - N/A
Master Mind - N/A

El Dorado Table


Lucky Day

Treasure Hunter - N/A
Skilled Adventurer - N/A

Shaman Table


Doom Bringer

Spirit of the Wilderness - N/A
Domination - N/A

Street Fighter II Tribute Table

Thunder kick - N/A
Hammer Hand - N/A
Warrior - N/A
World Warrior Champion - N/A

Default Tesla "Master Mind" trophy madness!

To echo the others, this is one of the best written trophy guides. Thanks for taking the effort! I got this game when it first came out. Only recently did I start attempting to try for the trophies.

Here's where my joy ends... :-( At present, I am trying for the "Master Mind" trophy on Tesla. I've been at it for many nights now with no luck. I was so close yesterday, doing the experiments backwards, I finally, finally got through all the tough ones out of the way and was in the middle of the easiest first experiment (which was the last one I needed) - I think I got too excited and the miss-hit the ball which then shot straight down the middle drain - and it was my last ball :-( Arrgghhh...

As frustrating as it was, the most frustrating part of "Master Mind" as you correctly pointed out in the guide was experiment 4. Getting 3 consecutive (and almost back-to-back) Tesla coil ramp shots is truly and frustrating difficult. I so envy "steviej" who posted that he got that quickly. Lucky b*st*rd! :-) The left upper flipper seems to have a mind of its own! It is already quite a challenge just to be able to get to experiment 4, and then having to activate it, get 3 tesla coil shots in a row without losing a ball is insane. What were the designers thinking?! It should be a "platinum" by itself! :-)

Also, it is so easy to lose a ball on this table with a mis-hit left upper flipper ball shot. If it doesn't go fully up the tesla coil ramp, it frequently drains left. I try to get the ball save and magna save active at the same time, but trying for this and then trying for the experiments just makes the whole experience ridiculous. Even the magna save can't help balls that shoot straight down the center drain. You must have lightning reflexes to activate magna save in that situation.

I'm not sure that anyone can help my desperate situation, but am willing to hear any tips. Thanks!

Just to repeat skippy: never ever make a shot without ballsave enabled and go for magna save as often as you can. Especially on the tesla coil shots, it is important to never shoot the ramp without ballsave, even if it means failing the mission over and over! Its not worth losing a ball over it. As long as you commit yourself to this, you should be fine!

On the run i got the trophy i also started doing the experiments backwards. I.e. starting with 4, then 5 and then back to 3, 2, 1.

A lot of people seem to have trouble with changing/choosing an experiment. If the ball is going berserk, briefly press the flipper in the opposite direction to slow it down. Only on the right side of the board does the ball drop down. If you let it go down on the left side, it should also slow it down enough for you to get it up the ramp controlled.

Other than that, if you get that close once, you can do it again! Now go get that trophy

Thanks for the words of encouragement, steviej! After a couple more nights of cursing and swearing (over a week total's worth I think), I finally, finally got the 'Master Mind' trophy! Woohoo! It was with my last ball left and I needed to complete the 5th experiment with it. Luckily, the pinball gods decided to smile on me this night and I barely completed it, got the 'Master Mind' trophy, and then since I was so happy, I mishit the ball down the drain, and never got to do the teleforce experiment. Screw it anyway, I'm never attempting the Tesla table again! Lol.

But like you said, I never did the experiments without BOTH the ball-save and magna-save activated, esp for experiments 2, 4 and 5. It was all about patience and keeping one's nerve. Why do I like these punishing trophies?! :-)

Now that I got all trophies on V12 and Tesla, it's time to move on to the others, where I already have the easiest 2 trophies each on all the other tables. From reading, it looks like both El Dorado and Shaman will be tough, esp. Shaman. Gotta brace myself! And hopefully SF4 is not too bad...

I finally got 100% trophies for Zen Pinball. Frustratingly difficult for both 'Domination' and 'Master Mind'. You can see my post here for some tips on 'Domination':

Good luck!
