Post Void Reviews
Secretly one of the better shooters of 2020.
Post Void is an absolute delight to play with some of the most satisfying FPS gameplay I've experienced in years. While it might only have eleven levels to play through, the outstanding gunplay will keep players engrossed in the hours, days and weeks to come and at £2.33, it's an unbelievable indie package.
Post Void is a masterpiece of compulsive motion and hypnotic, irresistible sounds. It does something to my brain that I’ve never experienced before.
Any roguelike fan needs to get their hands on Post Void. Quite frankly, if you have any remote curiosity in trying out the game, just do it. Apart from floor jumping not as refined as the rest of the game, the complete package offers up something special, hectic, and engaging. Take it from someone who hates roguelikes: Post Void is a fun roguelike, complete with fever dream.
Post Void is heavy rock-and-roll, flying pixels, and laser-sharp shmup arcade mechanics distilled into a combination that equally terrifies and unsettles.
Post Void is a barrage of garish visual information parading through the interface of a first-person shooter. As either an act of mercy or a concession to humanity, modest roguelite trappings force all of Post Void's noise and fury into manageable dosages. This leaves Post Void as a wonderful party drug, provided you can sustain the party and handle the drugs.
POST VOID takes you on a nightmare-ish trip (wink) to a place where violence is the answer. This addicting and adrenaline-pumping game is a solid addition to Nintendo's FPS library. It is short yet offers plenty of replayability as void jumping takes a lot of determination, skill and speed. It is a nod at shooters reminiscent of titles from the '80s and scratches that itch for something to play in bursts or put in the time to speed through in one go without the need to gamble all of your spare quarters.
Post Void packs fast pace FPS action, roguelike mechanics, and a weird 'in your face' art style into this tiny explosive package. If you don't like repeating instances then this small game might not be your style.
Short but funny frenetic game with retro graphics for a few bucks.

Post Void is an excellent mashup between classic DOOM and Hotline Miami that can take minutes to beat, but hours to master.
The premise is simple: shoot stuff, run towards the finishing line, and do these as fast as possible, with a meter acting both as a timer, and a health bar. It's simple, yet very effective at getting you immersed and addicted, however, while, the frenzy of Post Void is definitely thrilling, the visual "noise" can get in the way of your score-chasing fun.
The best way to sum up Post Void in any meaningful way would be ‘if Quentin Tarantino had somehow developed Doom instead of directing films’. The game has all the hallmarks of the director’s early works; it’s ultra-violent, hyper visceral and littered with barefoot baddies in sharp suits. The arcade style of short, sweet and brutal gameplay, rather than producing a lengthy campaign is a bold choice, and while your mileage may vary, I felt Post Void was the perfect bite-sized shooter that offered up a lot of fun despite its short runtime. The gameplay is engaging and snappy enough to the point I didn’t care about the game only being an hour long, or the repetitive soundtrack pumping in my ears like a German discotech. All I wanted to do was run through the myriad of creatures with a shotgun and make it as far as possible before being sent back to the beginning. Even now I can feel myself being drawn back for just one more hop through Post Void’s grotesque world…
If you asked me how viable a game like DOOM in acid might be, my answer definitely would have been no. Post Void kind of proves me wrong, the game is a solid and short experience that definitely is worth a shot in case you're looking for a different FPS experience in consoles.

At the end of the day Post Void is a budget title that is well deserving of your cash, despite a heavier reliance on luck than true skill. It’s a unique shooter that is addictive as it is frustrating, and with an asking price of less than the cost of a meal at your favorite fast food spot, you could do much worse with your money.
Twitchy challenge hounds will appreciate the tough, no-nonsense, and quick runs, hardly needing to take a breath before starting again
Post Void has the greatest virtues of being direct and having precise gameplay, with a generous contribution of roguelike touches. This combination manages to create something that always makes us look for the conclusion of the game or the best score. The bizarre aesthetic might offend some more sensitive eyes, but even its acute difficulty isn't a turn off.

As long as you don’t let POST VOID short out your synapses, this really is one of the truest forms of FPS gameplay. If you long for a true drop-in, drop-out FPS game and don’t mind the wavey corridors and searing color palette, there’s so much fun to be had with just a semi-procedurally generated corridor maze, some wickedly warped baddies to kill as fast as you can, and a few RNG buffs here and there. POST VOID definitely won’t be a feasible trip for everyone, but if you can stomach the demanding gameplay and get a grip on the PS4 controls, you’ll probably wind up pretty hooked on this digital drug.
Post Void is definitely a wild time with blistering fast FPS action, at the same time it feels limited in scope.
Post Void is, without question, the strangest game I’ve played in ages. It violently blends the neon-soaked surrealism and bloody mayhem of Hotline Miami, the roguelike elements of Binding of Isaac, and the rigid gunplay of a mid-1990s FPS to create an experience that’s unlike anything I’ve ever played before.
I really wanted to like Post Void, as in theory it features so many elements I love. It’s fast-paced, arcadey, and completely over-the-top. With that being said, I just can’t stand playing it for more than a minute or two at a time due to its horrendous flashing effects, as well as some of its gameplay design choices. It’s just an unpleasant experience. But they, at least the soundtrack is quite good…
