Fun but gets repetitiveCooberstooge | Aug. 26, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
PAM is one of those games you'll love right from the start. It's simple, looks good, and runs great - it's also loads of fun. Each vehicle is unique, and they all handle quite differently from one another. The tracks are nice and varied, with lots of jumps, dips, and drop offs. The AI cars offer up a good challenge, and sticking with them too long during a race is a surefire way to get cooked.
Racing online with your friends is where PAM truly shines, and half the time one person will make it to the finish miles ahead of everybody else, because you're too busy blasting the heck out of each other.
The game does start getting old fairly soon, though. Tracks can be memorized, and slamming into the invisible walls that litter them can quickly lead to ceasing of play. If you can look past its faults, Post Apocalyptic Mayhem is a nice little racer to pull out between waiting for the next big title on the horizon, and a good source of cheap fun with your mates.
Cool indie style gameNoLove3827 | Aug. 2, 2012 | See all NoLove3827's reviews »
Pretty cool, somewhat like a cross between Zombie Driver and Flatout. Good graphics and gameplay. Should run on any computer practically.
Explosive and fun!Mixters | May 19, 2012 | See all Mixters's reviews »
I actually bought this game from you guys a couple of months back. I played it for like 2hours maximum. It was fun and entertaining but it slowly began to bore me more and more. The game is too repetitive and there's nothing new going on.
I tried to play multiplayer a while back too but there were no servers available so that was a bummer. The graphics and gameplay are mediocre but I'd hoped that they would give the game a more dynamic feeling and add more attacks and such things.
Overall it could have been a good game, but unfortunately it wasnt. Grab it if you feel really bored a day or two.

Cars + Guns = Profit. Take out all the enemies with powerful guns and tricks, be ready also to meet not easy wins against the other participants, as you want to take them down, they do the same to you !
An average Indie arcade racing gameFreeMan85 | Nov. 17, 2011 | See all FreeMan85's reviews »
I have the chance to try this game on Steam's free weekend. Well, it's not the best racing game, it's just an average Indie arcade racing game. The name tells you post-apocalyptic and that what gives you. Old skool a bit rusty custom maded racing cars what usually you see in post-apocalyptic movies like Mad Max or Resident Evil: Extinction. School bus, jeep, truck... you name it, every car has own special ability, speed... the usual. You can play solo with bots or online against other players. There's a certain lap counter, but you can also destroy other vehicles. You see yellow, red, green and blue barrels with all a specific pick-up power. You can use against other players with WASD buttons. Left, right, center and back powers. Barrels, rockets, mines the usual stuff. Honestly I'm a bad driver, I can't use them when I have one, and I don't have one when an enemy vehicle approached me. The game graphics and sound are OK. Nothing special. I feeled the bloom effect is a bit overused, like someone used a flashbang or something. Of course you can turn it off. The maps are good, canyons, airport... well, it was used to be an aiport and similar maps.
This game is fun, but only if you search for a fun Indie and arcade type racing game. Don't have great expectations, this isn't a simulator or high-end graphics.
