Spoiler-free walkthrough
by casanova973

This is a spoiler-free walkthrough for The Getaway. If you don't know what a 
Spoiler-free walkthrough is, it's just a small step-by-step guide that should 
get you through the game without giving away any spoilers. 

You're probably thinking "Man, this is such a long game, how can you write 
such a small guide for such a big game?". Well, the point of this guide is to 
get you through the game without giving away any spoilers. This guide is also 
for you so you can print it off and look at it while you're playing the game. 
I am trying to make this guide as small as possible so you're not sitting 
there with hundreds of pages of strategies while playing The Getaway. Hope 
this guide helps!
