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.

I was enjoying this game... Until I found out you can't save your ******* game. I spent 3 hours in a single game, eating away at 3 enemy AIs set on hard difficulty, and I decided to quit. There was no save button in the menu and I figured it was save-on-exit. It wasn't. I lost 3 hours of my life. Now each time I restart I get a CTD 20 minutes in, each time. Don't waste your time on this game, guys. 4/10.
Apox is a rts set in a post apocalyptic wasteland. Unlike other rts games, Apox has its own twist on unit production, resource gathering and micromanagement. You don't get hordes of units to rush and swarm, instead you have to be smarter about your units. Unlike some games, resource management is very simple. The key to victory is holding and defending the important resource sites. There is a learning curve to the game, maybe about 30min to a hour of playtime. Once you figure out the basics, play the tutorials, you will be well on your way to some Co-op and player vs player action. That is where the game shines the most, in its mp. Team work is a must for this game, and rounds can be intense. Games generally last for about 20 minutes+ depending on the player count, which by the way, boasts up to 32 players at once! Locking in with over a 100 maps, this game offers a lot.
This game is far from perfect. It does have the random bug jump in from time to time but generally will run smooth and hiccup free. One could argue that it has bad graphics, but I would disagree, it looks and runs fine for what it is. The Sound is not the best, voice acting is meh and overall the audio is just lacking. The one thing I would have liked to see was more units. The current ones serve their purpose and are fairly balanced, but I think they could have done more. Overall a very fun and enjoyable RTS that could have used a bit more polish.
Please note, there is not a very active player base. That is why i recommend you play with friends.
