Wild West Pinball (Tips!)

Hi Folks,

really like this game but still have some open questions.
Suppose I´m not the only one.

Let´s have this thread to share some tips & tricks from the experts.

To start with it let me raise my questions first:
  • what is the back door for , how can I use it?
  • what´s up with the Bar beside of the 1000 pts?
  • how can I influence the shot on Harry seems randomly to me?

Heres one of my tips:

When your ball is in the left gutter, you'll notice on the table there are some markings that make it look like the ball can curve out when it launches. Simply shake your phone right as the ball gets in this area ( as it exits the shaft ) and you have a high chance of it rolling directly through the goldmine. This is extremely useful since the guttershots tend to fall back into the gutter if you do not shake the phone, and this way you get some points too!

I <3 sarcasm. In fact, when I hear about it, I get up and cheer for 30 seconds before doing a dance involving 8 jumping jacks and the robot.

It always happens to me that after the bank is open, then my ball go inside the bank, hit something and straight away come out of the bank, so i always fail in robbing the bank. Does shaking the phone helps in this scenario too?

Im pretty sure shaking the phone doesnt really help out much, save coming out of the left side gutter where I can sometimes make it go straight into the gold mine.

Does bumping left right up or down make a difference on the outcome of the movement? It doesnt appear to when I do it.

Do people consistently get higher scores or are higher scores achieved randomly?

I seem to score anywhere between 100,000 to 1,000,000.. and maybe a bit more when I get the free ball
