About This Game

APOX is a real-time strategy game that uniquely includes gameplay concepts from first-person shooters. Like in a FPS, you can prone, crouch, switch active weapons, throw grenades, and loot corpses. Soldiers in APOX have limited ammo, but ammo sharing is done seamlessly. Soldiers can be placed in vehicles, and this essentially lets you create your own unit designs. APOX keeps everything that makes RTS great like making bases, controlling strategic sites, and managing your resources.
The eight missions included are designed to show basic combat and explain the unique aspects to APOX's gameplay. From there, play in one of 100 scrimmage maps against AI-controlled bots. Play with your friends against bots in co-op mode or play against other people in versus mode.

Key features:

  • FPS-like tactics including prone, taking cover, limited ammo, weapon drops
  • 8 Combat Training Missions
  • 100 Scrimmage Maps
  • Massive games with up to 32 players
  • Play against AI-controlled bots in single player or co-op mode
  • Play against humans in versus mode
  • Internet matchmaking lobby, clans, ratings, and stat tracking'
  • Offline Skirmish mode
  • Map Editor

It is well... Its different but you will get bored after few hours of gameplay.Good concept i like post-apocalyptic games but when you play it you will feel like it has been finished in rush.There are features like limited ammo for every soldier so you have to keep your soldiers suplied then you need oil for your vehicles to funtion and oil can be gathered from limited sources which are located in strategic positions.Campaign is short and boring you will find most of them are repetetive go to place one , kill everyone, defend against counterattack etc. Skirmish plays as in most of the RTS game you start with basic structures gather resources , attack/defend and also u can control special structures like crashed plane which can be occupied by your soldiers this gives you some advantage over your enemy since when you control special structures you unlock some of the vehicles or upgrades etc.Your HQ is basicly used to gather survivors this is similar to the "Battle Realms" system you cant "build" your settler he have to find your hq and join with your group so you can assaign him for a specified job.


In General i wouldnt recomend this game.It gots some fancy features but it still plays like any outdated RTS.It's one of this games that you dont want to play again after a short break from playing.If the price goes down you can have a try but you may be dissapointed if you will buy it at its full price.

Overal Score:3/10

Game with alot of potential however it is sadly very badly executed, gameplay is stiff and boring and the game isn't really interesting.
The campaign is a DLC.

It just feels like the devs should've put more time into the game and the core aspects of it.


(Only buy it if you're desperate to kill time or if you're in need of knowing what a bad game looks like.)

Wouldn't recommend this. Great concept - poorly executed.

Multiplayer is dead/unsupported and requires some file configuration to get working. (same with Tryst)
Singleplayer is lacking.

The only good thing about this game is the ease with which it can be modified, although that in itself is a lot of tedious text editing.

Having tried to play this, I find it to not be worth one dollar, let alone fifteen.
Spend your money on something else. Trust me.

Bought this game 3 or so years ago for $30 and regretted it ever since, when I played the main menu was a seperate executable from the main game and that wasn't pretty either

It pads your steam library by 1 game

flat out bad interface
buggy/poorly optimised
(subjective) did not engage me at all
poor skirmish ai
Good luck trying to get into story mode

I found this to be a rather poor strategy game. It's a typical strategy game, with the basic controls every game of the genre has; but what dissapointed me is that it has several bugs, for example, when changing scenarios, the game restarts completely. Another problem I found is that, in my opinion, it's a bit unbalanced, even in the tutorial scenarios, something that doesn't leave a good impression in newcomers; after all, a tutorial should be designed to teach how to play the game in a user-friendly way.

This game is by far one of the worst uses of disposable income. Apox is an unsightly and poorly developed game and here are the reasons why. First and most importantly the programming is horrible, no game should ever be released with this level of neglect obvious in it. I often thought to myself that this game could have used much more love from it's developers that it received.

The pathing is bizarre, the units behave oddly (sometimes do what they are told), the "economy" side of things is a waste of time, and anything involving single player missions is a waste of time and effort considering that most of the time the game will either crash due to a programming error or some trigger failing to initialize.

Story wise this game feels like a concept that was thought up by a bored person who already had the game's assets made. I often felt that this could have been a loveable cult game if it had a good plot but your honestly better off playing a side scroller or flash game compared to this.

Overall this game was a headache to try and actually play, if your a fan of good rts games like myself dont add this to your wishlist because you will be unhappy with it.

A great and interesting concept utterly wasted by its poor execution. This could have been so good. Too bad it isn't,

In its time, APOX was that little ginger kid you were ashamed of hanging around but was just kind of fun, anyway.

Too bad, much like that ginger kid, APOX is now dead.

NOT a suggested buy.

APOX has some decent elements such as the munition/supply system. Everything else about this game is absolutely atrocious. It's buggy, the UI in my opinion is subpar, and it was effectively abandoned by the developed extremely quickly. The game feels like a tech demo, and feels incomplete even at that level. This is easily my most regretted Steam purchase. If only Steam's new refund policy had existed at the time...
