Steam Big Picture

About This Game

Post Apocalyptic Mayhem lets you race and battle heavily-modified vehicles through numerous breathtaking tracks and lay waste to other racers in over-the-top vehicular mayhem. You can use special vehicle abilities to cause spectacular destruction to enemy cars as you fight and speed to victory. You’ll experience remarkable speeds, hilarious and violent weapons, reinforced vehicles and various exhilarating tracks.
The game offers various intense race modes to allow you to showcase both your driving and battling skills. PAM features an accessible physics-based driving model that allows you to sense the immense speed of all the post apocalyptic vehicles as well as feel every bone-jarring impact from both weapons and the tracks. Play single-player or battle up to five friends in online multiplayer mode.

Key Features:

  • Vehicles – PAM offers numerous post apocalyptic vehicles. All the Vehicles are heavily-modified and extremely menacing. All Vehicles are heavy-duty, reinforced and are able to take and give a lot abuse. The vehicles all look like they can quickly and easily travel over the newly scorched wasteland while effortlessly smashing other vehicle along the way.
  • Weapons – All of the vehicles have three unique and powerful abilities that they can use to severely damage opposition vehicles: one front attack, a side attack and a rear attack. A Player can receive these special abilities by picking up Special Ability Barrels that are placed throughout all of the tracks. When a vehicle runs over a Special Ability Barrel, the vehicle will gain that specific ability and the Player will be able to use it whenever they prefer.
  • Multiplayer – Intense Online Multiplayer racing for up to 6 players.
  • Environments – The PAM tracks will be able to give players numerous options while racing as well as create intense areas for the all important collisions. All Tracks will contain:
    • Awe-inspiring apocalyptic environments.
    • Various paths around certain areas of the tracks.
    • Funnel areas were players are forced to drive in close quarters with other vehicles.
    • Huge Jumps.
    • Numerous compelling and completely unique tracks.
  • Achievements – 35 Steam achievements to be earned and displayed proudly.
  • Online Leader Boards – Every kill, every race and every result will be recorded and uploaded to online leader boards for bragging rights and fueled competition.

Have you ever watched the movie The Road Warrior? Have you ever watched the climatic, carnage-filled final chase scene and thought, "Man, I wish I could do that!"? Have you ever secretly fapped to that scene? If you answered yes to either or both of those last two questions, you might want to check out this game before seeking professional help.

Post Apocalyptic Mayhem is not a great racing game. Nor is it a great smah 'em up. But it is a decent hybrid of those two genres that provides some easy to get into and humorous fun (any game that has a metal version of 'Jingle Bells' in the set list gets a smile from me). There's a handful of cars, a handful of tracks and a couple of different play modes that provides some variety. That said, I don't think there's enough to justify the normal full price of the game. Pick it up on sale.

I have played this game properly and got a few and ima just say this game is meh that is the best dscription i can give its not a bad game but its not a good game if you like games like mario kart with power ups and stuff but want it grittier then its good but it has a some flaws like the multiplayer is dead unless you can get a copy for some friends which is really fun but the single player is disgusting and way to easy the only way to get any diffuculty is to make it on hard difficulty but it has pretty good graphics and when u kill someone its satisfying and so is those DRIVE THROUGH THE DEBRIS!! moments so its like i said meh (sorry for bad english)

This has been one of my first title when i took back my steam account after years of non-gaming.
With this small amount of dollars you will have a post apocalyptic scenario in which you will choose a car type to drive with.
Each car has its own weapons which can be used once they are picked up during the race from barrels.These stands on the roads and ach one has a different color (once for button blue-yellow-red-green,if you are using the xbox gamepad, and a grey one that randomly assign to your car a weapon).
Both offline (in which you can choose the game difficult) and the online are fun and the game is very entertaining with fluid animations.
The online is slightly different: here you can create a room,choosing what type of circuit you are going to do: laps type,means you need to end them for first (but still you can use weapons to crush opponents),the kill one, in which you will be ginven an amount of time in which who scores more death wins and more.
The only downside is that the online is pretty dead,sometimes you will wait hours to find someone,and probably he will leave during the laps if he sees that he is losing (morons are everywhere),problem is,that if he leaves and there arent 2 players running, the game will automatically ends bringing you back to the main menu.
If you are too good players will kick you once you go into a room,this happened me many times to ask myself what the heck was goin on that everyone was kicking me. People are always the same, or at least, regular players are, so they see that you always win,they wont let you match them. (morons again)
Beside this,is a great game and worth every dollar to spare some time on it.
Unluckily devs look too busy or just lazy to implement this game with more things, otherwise it would be really really beautiful with for ex customizable cars,weapons and tracks.

Personal Rating : "Worth trying"
Traditional Rating : 7/10


Not much to say about this game, it's good beat-em-up arcade racing game just like the old days. Well, hit the mystery boxes to get power-ups (booster, rocket, etc) and make your way trough.
Gameplay is so-so, you'll get bored eventually because lack of game mode and car choices.
Map, car design and special ability maybe the best shot that this game can give.


TL;DR
don't have friends? don't bother try this because like every other beat-em-up arcade racing, playing with AI sucks

A proper racing game has working physics; they don't have to make sense but I think they just have to work properly. I didn't find proper physics in this pretty crappy racing game.
I found myself just bouncing constantly from walls and small obstacles and spinning out of control constantly. Even the CPU could barely handle the physics in the game. Every small car I've tried out in this game seems to be the most subjugated to its out-of-control physics whatwith them bouncing the hardest and flying the highest and just whatever else. This game is bad.

The only things actually cool here are the way the maps look and maybe the soundtrack.

Probably one of my all time favorite Real-Time Strategy games, the learning curve is not that big and it's a very "noob friendly" community.

The ammount of time you can commit to one game is amazing, when you think about it really.

Just like that song said "Only Fez 2 can save gaming now" -Kanye West

I'm pretty sure I picked this game up for free somewhere, although I don't remember where. For a game that's been bundled and that plenty of people probably have, it's got a surprisingly dead multiplayer, although it's still possible to find games if you're persistent. Handling of the vehicles is a bit wonky, and physics in general are strange in a fun way. The game is an unashamed console port, with the instructions screen still referencing an Xbox controller and the power-ups doing the same. However, it's rather satisfying to unleash the variety of weapons on other players, and it's a game that values both racing laps and getting kills, as both count towards the final score.

honestly one of the most underated games ive played. yeah, the graphics may suck, but well ive had a ton of fun playing it. One of the few vehicular combat games that still feel like a racer, unlike the others that put your camera view a mile away.
Only thing bad about this is the lack of people playing online. Controls also feel quite good and the atmosphere feels nice as well. Quite the wasted game.
