Jeffy x360a wrote a collectibles guide that if followed, will get you all 14 of the collectible related achievements in the game. Be sure to follow it closely because if you miss one, it is very difficult to figure out which one you missed. Also, it is important to note that if you collect some and die before reaching a checkpoint you will need to recollect them again. The items that are easily missed are #51 (puppet), #52 (puzzle piece), #76 (puzzle piece) and #86 (puzzle piece). These item numbers are from his guide.

The guide can be found at this link: Jeffy x360a's Collectible Guide

 Chromatic (15 points)
Beat the best time for the Kaleidoscope Minigame (Normal)
 

Once you’ve beat the game on Normal, “Flashback” to Case 7 – Solomon. This case has a Kaleidoscope mini game right near the beginning. The puzzle is right after moving the boxes with the crane. If you don't beat the best time, just restore the checkpoint and try again.

This is one of the few puzzles that you can walk up to but not select the game immediately. Instead, walk up so you can see it but DO NOT press . Pause the game and take a long look to get a plan together, then unpause and start it up.

Also the final puzzle in Case 5 - Joseph, has 4 kaleidoscope mini games in it where you can try this.
Thanks to Tommycbs for the tip.

Beat the best time for the Lights Out Minigame (Normal)
 

Once you’ve beat the game on Normal, “Flashback” to Case 4 – Sarah. This case has a spot in it close to the beginning where you need to get a valve out of a locked fence area. There is a short floor puzzle on either side, followed by a short lights out puzzle. This is a good area to get these achievements because you get two attempts at it before having to restore the checkpoint. The puzzles are also fairly short and easy.

Secret Achievements
 
 
Sarah Blalock (30 points)
Freed Sarah From The Trap
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 4 - Sarah, this is the final puzzle with the junkie Sarah in a cage surrounded by electrified water. Once you drain the pool and shut off the power, you will have to climb up to her and synchronize pipe fittings together to drain the tank. This puzzle is a bit tricky and I would recommend doing the far right pipe first since it is hardest. After that the other two will be a walk in the park.

 

 
Joseph Poltzer (30 points)
Freed Joseph From The Trap
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 5 - Joseph, this is the final puzzle with the dirty cop Joseph in the Vice Machine. The puzzle is basically an extended Kaleidoscope mini game.

 

 
Carla Song (30 points)
Freed Carla From The Trap
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 6 - Carla, this is the final puzzle with the nurse Carla in the Elevator Trap. The puzzle is similar to the light switch number puzzles in the game except instead of putting the numbers in order, you must balance the totals of either side. Figure out the difference in totals and switch the numbers that have a difference equal to half of the difference in the totals and you lock one hitch in. Repeat until all the hitches are locked.

 

 
Solomon Bates (30 points)
Freed Solomon From The Trap
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 7 - Solomon, this is the final puzzle with Solomon hanging from a cart above some gas pipes. The first stage is a single push to the second stage but be sure to grab the puzzle piece to the left in the tunnel before pushing him through. The second stage is another cart moving puzzle like the rest in the game where you must move carts to clear a path to push him through. The third stage is the big pain. You will need to solve a TV memory match puzzle to open the door and free him. Just remember that you are matching two related pictures this time, not two of the same. For instance, shotgun shells match the shotgun, film roll matches the camera. All through this puzzle you will be moving him from one burner to the next when they ignite. Don't worry, your matches stay equipped when you back out of the TV game to move him.

 

 
Henry Jacobs (30 points)
Freed Henry From The Trap
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 3 - Henry, this is the final puzzle with the cop in the chair and a gun in his mouth. It's basically an extended Lights Out mini game.

 

 
Would You Like To Play A Game? (15 points)
Completed The Eye Surgery Minigame
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

As soon as the game starts, you will be in control of Campbell. Follow the button prompts indicated on the TV's to your right and you are done. Achievement unlocked.

 

 
Compassion (15 points)
Saved A Person That You Didn't Have To
 

In Case 3 - Henry, when you are in control of barefoot Michael, you will come to a room that says "Follow The Rules" on the wall. A cut-scene will play, and you will have the option of saving the man from the scene. Just complete the simple number swap puzzle on the wall to your right and achievement unlocked. I would strongly advise you complete this because there is a collectible you won't have access to if the man dies.

 

 
Did I Fire 6 Shots Or Only 5... (15 points)
Joseph Died
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 8 - Michael, you will periodically do the bullet dodge / cover to cover thing while Joseph the cop shoots at you. Eventually you will chase him up a flight of stairs and he will stop in a dead end hallway. Sprint at him and follow the onscreen button prompts and you will end up shooting him in his head and unlocking this achievement.

 

 
Firefighter (15 points)
Barry Died
 

Although not really story related, this achievement can't be missed. At a certain point in Case 6 - Carla, you will be moving carts around and Barry will be up high somewhere throwing molotov cocktails at you. If you just ignore him and continue on your path, he will continue to throw them at you and end up burning himself instead. I know it sounds weird, but it happens to me every time I replay the level.

 

 
Hands Off (15 points)
Zeke Died
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 7 - Solomon, you will come to a point where you open a door and Zeke the Slicer, will attack you. Note that this is actually the second time he attacks. After a quick sprint through the hallways, stopping only to grab the puzzle piece from the stairwell, you will shove a bookcase in front of a doorway and block him. Exit this room to the very next room. Hit the lever on the floor and mash the button to get the spike panels to turn. When Zeke comes running through the door in between the panels, they will crush him and you'll be 15 richer.

 

 
Third Time's The Charm (15 points)
Subdued "The Bullish Man"
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 6 - Carla, you will come to a fenced in room that you must enter and press a button. Once again The Rammer will attack you and this time you need to stand in front of the electrified panels of fencing and dodge, causing him to run into them and get zapped. After about three or four of those he will finally go down for good.

 

 
Hedgehog's Dilemma (15 points)
Donovan Died
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 8 - Michael, you will come to a room with shipping boxes and another Rammer with hedgehog spikes in his chest. The first time you fought him you had to get him stuck in the wooden boxes and hit him with weapons. This time, if you run around you will find a crane control with a wooden box near it. Dodge and get him stuck in the wood, grab the crane control, which already has a box on it, position it over him and drop it on his spiky head. After he dies be sure to lift the box again and search his body for the key you need.

Battering Ram (15 points)
Defeated "The Bullish Man"
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In the first case, while playing as Campbell, you will come outside and a cut-scene will play introducing you to the first spike headed guy known as The Rammer. Defeating him is as easy as hitting the elevator button, standing in front of it, and dodging to the side as he is charging you. He will fall into the open elevator shaft and the double doors across the way will open.

 

 
Now THAT'S Using Your Head! (15 points)
Escaped "The Bullish Man"
 

Story related and cannot be missed.

In Case 4 - Sarah, you will be once again be confronted by The Rammer. This time you will have to stand near a crumbling wall, on top of an “X” on the floor. Dodging from this location will cause him to slam into the wall. After about three or four slams into the wall, he will break through it and fall into nowhere.
