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 was too difficult to understand. It just seemed like I was in this weird world where I just shot people over and over. It got annoying when the dialogue boxes kept showing up. It's not terrible, at least. I am quite surprised that so many people seem to like this, but I guess to each his own, I suppose. What I think is good is that it is a pretty clear cut game in terms of gameplay and you are motivated to beat it if only to get those medals.

The best thing about it is probably how the ships are actually fairly well detailed. I was just waiting for there to be an upgrade for the firing power you had. I think the ships are pretty well designed, they're just not used very well. Everyone has their own opinion and it's too bad I don't have the same as many people here. The dialogue boxes really can fool you.

I really liked the game, but on one of the last missions in the Nyx Conglomeration at the Exile Habitat, the game will freeze up as soon as one of the big red enemy ships shows up. Please fix this so I can finish the game!

Not everyone gets this bug - I don't, not in any browser - which is why I'm struggling with fixing it. But I'm on it!

I very much enjoyed this game--a good mix of exploration and shmup action. I like that upgrades are rewarded for missions as well as purchased.

I would have rated this higher, but unfortunately the third mission in Nyx/Exile Habitat keeps freezing on me. I can pause and adjust the volume, but otherwise it sticks. Every other mission plays A-OK. I'm using Opera.

I'm trying to figure this out. Several people have reported it, but it doesn't happen on my computer in any browser, and there's really nothing different programming-wise about Nyx or Exile... it's rather perplexing, really.

One of the best shooters i´ve ever played. I love the good looking vectorgraphics of the game. I can´t get 2 medals for the game, because the game saves after the final battle and not giving me the medals for that.
