When performing Beam Walk, Amy grabs onto a Balance Beam and swings herself elegantly and gracefully on top of it where she can move perfectly and unhindered. This enables the player to both walk and jump along Balance Beams to reach areas specifically for Amy and that other characters cannot reach. To activate the move in gameplay, Amy simply has to make contact with the Balance Beam. The player can then use the normal controls to move Amy.
- This move is similar to the Grinding move used by other characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series in that it is used to cross over thin narrow beams.
