About

POSTAL is the first part in its series of shooting games. It is best known and somewhat infamous for its uncanny violence, cynical black humor, and a highly controversial theme. The game offers the player to "go postal" on a spree shooting across the city. Plot The player controls the protagonist, nicknamed The Postal Dude: a homeless middle-aged man who apparently goes crazy and hears disembodied voices. He believes in a conspiracy theory that US government has poisoned his hometown with a nerve agent, and he's the only sane person around. He tries to eliminate the crowd he considers "infected". His goal is to fight his way to the US Air Force base which he believes is responsible for the presumed attack. Gameplay Unlike its better-known sequel, POSTAL is 2D and uses top-down and isometric views. On each level, the player has to kill a specified share of enemies: civilians, military, and police alike. When this goal is complete, the door to the next level will appear. The player can complete the level even if The Postal Dude is killed, as long as the number of his own kills is satisfactory. The character can carry up to 8 types of weapons with varying strength and ammo limit. His basic gun is the weakest but has indefinite ammo supply. Expansions and adaptations There's an expansion pack Special Delivery that adds more levels and characters. In 2016, the game was remastered and re-released as Postal Redux. The game was unsuccessfully adapted to film by Uwe Boll.

POSTAL reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
I loved this game so much! Too bad they don't make them like that anymore. I've been laughing all along, good little game to redo. It is very comfortable with the steam controller provided you use the binding created by Agajag in the community-the default is mediocre-. As for the keyboard/mouse game on the other hand it does not look terrible.

Bought For 20 Cents and it's just the Value! Graphics and Gameplay are very good. Postal stop < 3 BUT the Control is not possible! On the Keyboard even a Tick worse than with the Controller. You have to focus extremely on running properly and at the same time you still have to kill the Opponents. That's not how it's supposed to be, you shouldn't worry about the Movement running the Game. Just run and focus on the Gampelay. Too bad, otherwise I would certainly have liked it. But such a Control makes the Game almost unplayable!

the graphics are very bad and have no originality of the shoot em up without even a hint of history handling, 3 keys... run, kill.... and it's all no effort was made for this game a slight hint of irony noted from the shoot em up, without history, run, shoot, change weapon, kill, get killed and recomencer.... There is no more con as game but to finish a level you have to reach a percentage of kill, which makes the gents who want to play this game must know count up to 100 which is very ironic given the style of the game short it is lame and without interest.. unless possielement you play on game boy

Okay I'll do another evaluation mode because the old ones were not terrible HAPPY XMAS EVERIBODY let's BURN THE SANTA POSTAL history: well... There is not really all you learned is that you are a freak in lack of violence and who makes a real genocide to him alone the gameplay: horrible. This game is just horrible with the commands when you direct your characters it looks like you're running a tractor its looks a bit like controlling the first resident evil so for a hectic action game and especially that is very hard almost for the HARCORE gamers is really cripking the lifespan: Asser long because the steam versions gives you postal plus (a sort of DLC that adds several levels in addition) the graphics: the graphics are... SPECIALE it looks like you play on a sheet to draw so good this date games so we will forgive the music: there is not really music in this games more noises of moods notes: despite the seniority of this game the game remains just as null , unplayable, hard, ugly and immoral so it will be a 07/20 I do not advise you this games
