Introduction:
Amy is a survival horror game that focuses heavily on escorting a little girl named Amy. Her handler, Lana, is infected and Amy is her cure. Straying away from Amy for too long will cause Lana to become overwhelmed and turn into a zombie herself. Lana's goal is to take Amy to see a doctor who can help her, all the while a deranged professor tries to stop them and recapture Amy.

The game is much more focused on survival than horror. Exploring, minimal combat, and puzzles break up the game into various trial and error chunks, leaving the player to guess and check nearly the entire length of the game. 2 Checkpoints per chapter are spread very far apart and failing one section of a chapter can lead you to replaying large 5-10 minute sections over many times.

Walkthrough:
Complete Text Guide as well as a Video Guide is available.

Conclusion:
Amy is a brutal game in terms of difficulty. You can be lost and frustrated for hours on end and progress no where in the game thanks to the uselessness of the checkpoint system. Hopefully the guides alleviate the difficulty and easily leads you through to a more moderate challenge and ultimate completion.

First task given at the start of the game. Natural progression through the first chapter. Cannot be missed.

http://oi39.tinypic.com/6gvbic.jpg Bodyguard 20http://i43.tinypic.com/sfecld.jpg "Complete a level without the monsters draining Amy's energy"

Easily achieved within the first chapter. Simply do not allow Amy to be left alone during an attack. Not too many attacks during the first chapter so you should have no issue regardless of difficulty.

Natural progression. Cannot be missed.

At the beginning of Chapter 3, you have a very long separation puzzle where you place Amy at the beginning platform and then proceed across the entire room through minefields and across obstacles.

After you reach the opposite side of the room, Zombies will start to appear to ambush you. A small cutscene will inform you that Amy's new Push ability can be used numerous times should she stand on the icon.

Simply cast the telekinetic Push ability and hit one of the 4 Zombies that are attacking Lana. There are multiple mines so you shouldn't have a problem. I suggest actually killing off all Zombies this way before proceeding. Just be cautious of Lana's deteriorating health and use syringes when needed.

Not a problem. Will have a better screenshot as soon as Chapter 2 is finished rendering out.

Nice guide so far :) any ideas on how to push enemies?

I saw your post on High Voltage achievement, I swore I got this to pop during Chapter 2. Potentially it is after Chapter 2, maybe a quick time event, or perhaps when one does not have a weapon?

Will test as soon as I'm through recording Chapter 3.

OK beginning of Chapter 3 holds the answer to the High Voltage Achievement, can't miss it ;). Will crop it out of my Chapter 3 video and upload straight away.

Video is ~2 hours away, uploading now. I assure you though you can't miss it at the beginning of chapter 3.

Ayx 01-11-2012 06:25 PM

I'm at Chapter Two at the moment and I'm hezitating if to wait until you finish it on Hard and see if they stack or to finish my playthrough on Normal and see what happens.

On Hard there was more enemies meaning it's a lot more trial and error than normal, I think it's pretty highly recommended to play through it a first time to get the feel for things, especially that clunky combat system.

I love the game, it feels like one of those cheap bargain bin games you find and actually find it intriguing. Sure there's more 800MSP gems, but it's just one of those games you can enjoy and say "That was pretty fun."

High Voltage video now up. Should be self explanatory after the cut scene instructions.

Still confused about the hiding achievement. For sure I had that pop but sure enough it's not on my card. Chapter 4 is brutal!

Ayx 01-11-2012 08:47 PM

The more I play this game the more I hate it's mechanics. Especially it's stealth ones, after like an hour of finally figuring out I'm suppose to smash the window with the bar, I progress to a room where it's a Metro Gear Solid esque scenario where he does a rotation, you silence the glass and move forward. However the camara angle is such ass that you have a very little chance of knowing if he's starting his routine again or not.

Unless I'm getting the Silence where the Glass Shatters Part, I'm stuck on Chapter Two... AGAIN. ): && WTF is up with these checkpoints? Sure it takes me another 10 minutes to backtrack but it's one mistake and you're usually done AS IT IS. Damn this game even on normal just killed my boner so fast, chapter one was actually fun.

I've just finished Chapter 4, so I'll be doing the write up shortly for Chapter 2. I'm on Hard at the moment. Honestly I killed all of those guys, didn't bother casting Mute on the glass by the time it was like my ~20 time replaying that portion. BTW the DNA you need is there by the fire, after you pass the first mine.

The checkpoints are ridiculous.

Chaos MAN 01-11-2012 08:59 PM

Here's how I got my "Were are you" achievement. In chapter 2 when you get to the first security guard ( were you have to crouch under the glass window ) let him see you on purpose. When he starts to come after you grab Amy and run right around the corner. There will be a door on your left that has a hiding spot in it. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!!!!!!!!

You can get it right at the beginning with that monster. when he sees you hide in the locker you found amy in.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kidding, thanks for the tip though. No matter how many times I made that Monster look at me he'd just derp and I'd hide and never got the achievement. I was getting upset lol.

To put it blunt, fuck these checkpoints in this game man. Wtf.

Outinthedark 01-11-2012 09:33 PM

I'll try to get a video of both ways within Chapter 2. For some reason mine did not unlock for me.

I tried to get it there but it wouldn't unlock for me. I reloaded the check point 5 times and nothing.:(

Ayx 01-11-2012 09:53 PM

They really need to use that Split Screen function more often in more vital situations. Not just when you actually KNOW you have to run your ass off. Why didn't they just do it whenever a route had to be taken? Timing that guard's route in Ch.2 Checkpoint is just fucking nuts.

Really hope I can knock it down before I head off to the Gym in 30 mins. ;[

I hid amy first, then i hid last just as he turned the corner. dont hide when he is on the other side.

Outinthedark 01-11-2012 10:35 PM

I've been up since 5AM with Hard Mode. There are some seriously straining moments. After editing the videos however, it would be fairly simple execution.

I spent 2 hours alone on chapter 2. I'm on 5 now and this is just wtf difficult.

Same here, I'm fucking done. I'm at the exact spot you're at, I finally got to the Fire DNA ONLY TO FORGET THE BAT CAUSE IT TOOK IT AWAY ):<

Fuck this game. I really need a break from it, I love it but at the same time it feels so Vampire Rain-ish it hurts.

This game needs a Walkthrough, from a warrior like dark. <3 && I'm not playing till I know these cheevs are stackable. That wall I'll suffer ONE playthrough and delete this. I really wish this would've been my little horror gem too. </3

It's the soldier Ayx, everytime he catches me on the damn catwalk :mad::uzi::uzi::uzi:i wanna punch something right now. i really want to love this game but it doesn't look like i will until i beat this chapter. i was hoping it wasn't something i got 200G's and delete right after :( WHY AMY WHY?

Outinthedark 01-12-2012 01:09 AM

You do not want to play Chapter 5 then. I've been stuck replaying the same 5 minute segment over and over again. There is nothing that stands out as logical progression.

needs moar uzis.

THREE HOURS of that Chapter Two because the Checkpoint system wants to jam your ass so hard it made Halo 1 (Which had some pretty bad Checkpoints) a Cakewalk. Not really, but my lack of experience in actually playing SLOW is just really really draining me. Not to mention it took me about 5 tries to figure out I needed to hold Amy's hand not to die of Contamination...

The lack of Minimap (I get it, it's a horror game but SHIT.) really takes the cake for me. The routes take like 400000000000 times to finally find a way to Activate the Telephone, Run to the Lockers, wait 10 minutes as the dude patiently walks away the first corridor, Rush to get the DNA, get the Silence power and what not.

And you can't fuck up once or you're hit, back to the 10 minute soldier walks through corridor game. It's just too painful for a game of this magnitude, I mostly take horror games as dark strong storytelling, bet I can barely get the story to progress... LOL.

I just shut it off when I went to the gym earlier, I really enjoyed the trial and I freaking hate spending the points for this. The difficulty spike is fairly high (on normal btw, can't picture Dark's hard playthrough.) because of it's bad mechanics, sucks.

If this has no Stackable Cheevs I'll debate 200'ing it. Dammit, Amy. Y U DO THIS TO US? </3 [/endrant]

Outinthedark 01-12-2012 02:38 AM

I am on the last section. This is just insane.

OMGAH! There are 6 chapters. I don't think I can play anymore.

Video 1 however is live!

Ayx 01-12-2012 03:46 AM

Yeah yo. Should I just wait till tomorrow to see if Hard is stackable before I continue? I'd rather suffer once if I can. If not I'll just sack up and go.

The final boss is ridiculous. I was able to get 4 hits on him, still didn't go down.

Actually I may have found an exploit. I should get him this time.

I take that back, I get caught every time somehow after 5 minutes of kiting him through mines. This is just silly stupid now.
