Traitor puts you into the shoes of a soldier of the Augustan Hegemony, forced to rise up against your former masters after you're ordered to do something you simply cannot accept. Explore the Aventinus Complex, complete missions, upgrade your ship and gather allies until you can overthrow the tyrants who have brought such misery to the people.

[Note: If you're playing in Firefox and experience odd control problems, try switching to Chrome or Opera.]

[Current version: 1.7]

TIPS:
1. The game opens up after the 4th mission, when you reach the map.
2. Upgrades are available in shops on the map screen.
3. The menu allows you to see your stats, achievements and allies.
4. If a mission is too difficult, try playing a different one and upgrading your ship.
5. In some situations, survival is more important than destroying all enemy ships.

MEDALS:
If your medals aren't unlocking, this is probably because the NG server is having some hiccups. Try reloading the page and see if the preloader ad is being displayed. Then go to the in-game Achievements screen; the game will try to unlock any medals you should already have.

This game is a reminder that a game (or anything, for that matter) can be fun and entertaining, and also have thought and a philosophy behind it. I know all this author's work, and love everything he made.

Love the story this game puts us into. There's so much variety; all the places you can visit have a distinct voice, which makes you feel that there's a whole culture there, and you're just scratching the surface. And obviously, you can come up with a billion parallelisms between the situations these people from unknown cultures find themselves into, the ones from our world. The creator described the game as putting us in a world not quite like ours, but while that is true, it would also be true that it is quite like ours.

In terms of gameplay, it's simply a lot of fun; maybe it starts tilting to the easy side after getting the auto-repair upgrade... but that didn't really bother me. I'll probably just don't get that upgrade the next time I play it to have more challenge. On the up side, it never gets horribly frustrating, and I was happy to keep going instead of wanting to stop playing because of exagerated difficulty. What can I say? Absolutely loved it. When I finished it, I just wanted it to go on. You know? I think I'll give it another go right now...

Very nice game. For a vertical shooter in a pixel-like representation, this was incredibly well thought out. Even the story was deep and compelling. Every part of the game served a purpose, and I wasn't disappointed for a single piece of it.

After obtaining every medal for this game, I can very well say I am completely satisfied.

5 / 5 fer sure.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

the lag issues that i fced made this game nigh playable. whenever it has too many elements on the screen at one time, the last diection you pressed, the ship will continue to head that direction until either it hits the wall, kills itself, or you mash the directional keys to regain control.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Everything except the gameplay is enjoyable.

The prologue in particular was very good. It really got me in to the game. The way the game opened up was a revelation moment and excited me initially, but the plot driven premises of the game disappeared and I was left feeling empty. Repeating the standard missions for money and reputation to open up new paths is a cool concept, but not when the gameplay is setup in a way that the stages can't deviate from the mostly standard formula of watching objects fly by.

Your hitbox in relation to the total game screen is disproportionately huge, making the game feel very chunky. There is not much movement space and removes room for some really interesting stage designs. Since there were upgrades I figured the problem might alleviate itself as I become stronger and faster, but the core problem persisted and I couldn't really get myself to enjoy the game in the end.

Good idea. Good plot. Good graphics. Boring game. Sleep inducing soundtrack.

PS: I was playing Firefox, there was some freezing up and control issues, but I didn't put that into consideration for the review.
