Alan Wake’s American Nightmare Cheats

Welcome to our cheats page for Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, were we dig through this downloadable third-person shooter and uncover the secrets within. A standalone episode in Alan Wake’s story, the eponymous author finds himself in Arizona and trapped within one of his early scripts for the television show Night Springs.

Losing the Stephen King-inspired horror in exchange for pulpy action, Alan Wake comes armed with a Nail Gun, Crossbow, and Uzi to devastate the monstrous new shadow enemies. For players that thrive on high scores, there’s even a new arcade mode that keeps score as you fight waves of opponents in a desperate bid to survive until sunrise. Toss the sleeping pills, put on some coffee, and prepare for a long night.

If achievements and extra unlockables aren’t your style, take some time to read Game Front’s full walkthrough here.
