The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a fantastic arcade game; you can really tell this game has had a heap of love poured into it. You'll find this little gem is also full of lots of gaming culture references. This coupled with great gameplay, unique storyline which carries on from the first game and multitude of game modes, and difficulty makes for one of the best arcade releases in years. This is a must buy if you consider yourself a gamer.

Playthrough 1
Play on the lowest difficulty setting to begin with as Samurai is locked until you beat the game at least once. Take note that although Co-op is possible at this point, some beads and most notably Bleep bloop! are not possible to attain in Co-op. You will have the choice two characters after you beat the prologue. It is advised you pick The Dishwasher as it will allow you unlock Bleep bloop! and will save you a boss fight on the Samurai Difficulty.

Pay attention to the I Did Not Use A FAQ achievement, it requires you to find collectibles. I have included a text guide to the location of all 30 Ghost Beads. It will help to get the collectibles on the first playthrough as they carry over to Samurai and effect various attributes of your character.

You'll need to pay attention to Bleep bloop! as well. A very unique set of tasks are involved. The majority of the other achievements will come through natural progression

Playthrough 2
You should have unlocked the Samurai difficulty by now and should have all of the Ghost Beads. This playthrough is all about the Samurai difficulty. Enemies will have more health and do more damage but if you have a handle on the mechanics of the game you shouldn't find this too hard. This cannot be done in Co-op.

Playthrough 3
This will be the playthrough for the arcade mode. Arcade isn’t that challenging but will take some time. There are 50 levels in Arcade. Remember to keep trying new strategies. You can do this in Co-op.

This step will also be clean up time if there any achievements you may have missed.

Although at first this game can be quite challenging, once you get to know the characters move set and the mechanics involved, coupled with this guide it is very possible unlock the full 200 in under 10 hours gameplay.

Beat the game on Samurai difficulty as The Dishwasher or Yuki.    (28) 

To unlock Samurai Difficulty, you need to beat the game on any other difficulty at least once. You will then need to beat the game as either The Dishwasher or Yuki on Samurai difficulty. There are 13 levels to go through and there are a lot of bosses in the last five. This is not as difficult as the first game, but do not underestimate it.

It is currently NOT possible to play the game on Samurai or Pretty Princess on Co-op, local or online.

Here are some tips for playing on Samurai.

  • Choosing who you play as is important. On one hand Yuki's combos are more built for taking out bosses quickly and on another The Dishwasher is built for dealing with the masses. That doesn't mean that can't do both.
  • Remember that upgrades purchased on a lower difficulty do stay when you start Samurai, so it is advisable to upgrade your character's weapon/skull/health.
  • Warping is a THE best way of dodging, the only time you should stop warping is to walk through doorways.
  • It is recommended you have all the beads before starting, this will make a huge difference. Having the beads set up to maximize your health regeneration is the preferred set up. There are three beads that boost this: The Flower Bead (Slow health regeneration whilst in combat), The Heart Bead (Enemies drop more hearts), and The Bat Bead (With every hit you steal health from enemies). The fourth slot is up to you but The Eye Bead (Less chance the enemy will block against your attack) goes nicely with this set up.
  • If you've stunned or weakened an enemy to near death and the finishing move pops up, take advantage of it.

Beat all Arcade levels.   (6) 

The Arcade levels are an assortment of challenge levels. You are given a preset load out of weapons and magic. There are 50 levels comprised of

  • Bosses
  • Time limits
  • Air-combo only
  • Vampire levels (Slow health drain, kill for health.)
  • Slo-mo (More combo = More Slow-mo)
  • Instakill (Enemies take large amounts of damage, but so do you. Guns work best.)
  • Hot Potato (Hold the same weapon for too long and you are forced to swap.)
  • And a few levels with special requirements.

You play as either Yuki or The Dishwasher, it varies level to level. There isn't one singular method to beating all 50 levels, so it is recommended that you experiment with each level. The last four levels are probably going to give you the most trouble, keep at it there is a lot of luck involved some times. Co-op IS possible.
