  Get ready for the Mayhem. -PAM Launch Trailer

Post Apocalyptic Mayhem, or PAM for short, is a Vehicular Combat game by developer Steel Monkeys, creators of 2 Days to Vegas and Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run. It was released on March 17, 2011, on Steam.

It's After the End, with the Apocalypse How left unexplained. There is no Excuse Plot, no tutorial (unless you count the quick reference in the options menu) and very short load times. The only thing that matters is action. Twelve different war-wagons, each with distinct weaponry, battle it out over five sprawling tracks to see who can score the most kills.

Players can compete against AI-controlled vehicles in single races or three-track tournaments. They can also go online to compete against up to five other players in ranked or unranked matches.


Post-Apocalyptic Mayhem provides examples of:

  • Techno Wreckage: Some of this is found on the "Cold War Beach" track, which features a beached aircraft carrier as part of the track and a similarly-wrecked submarine as an obstacle to be jumped. "Wasteland" features an area that strongly resembles the Very Large Array. The new track "Death 8 Arena" also features lots of this, with a wee bit of Minecart Madness for good measure.
  • This Is a Drill: The Kitty's forward weapon is a lengthy drill (so long it doesn't look like it should fit) emerging from the head of a Unicorn.
  • Weaponized Car: But also a weaponized logging truck, weaponized RV Meth Lab, and a weaponized goddamn school bus.
    • The first DLC gives us a weaponized Smart Car.
    • The second DLC provides a weaponized ice cream truck and tow truck. And an old-timey cop car with whitewall tires.
  • Weaponized Exhaust: The Space Cowboy's Burn Baby, Burn weapon, which causes the car's massive rocket engine to roast any close-pursuing cars. Toasted Buns indeed.
