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.

Very well made! I like the epic-ness of the battles and the plot. This is the first arcade game I've played and enjoyed in years! By arcade, I just mean where the ships scroll down the screen. I liked how one could move from place to place outside of battle and the mission briefings and debriefings were very nicely written. Overall, the gameplay was nicely balanced, in my experience. The game never gets too easy or too hard, and wasn't too long or too short. Once my weapon strength and regen went up though, it became super easy, which was cool since it was the end and I didn't want to spend an hour fighting a boss. I agree with the moral and theme of the game too, so thanks for making this! If you want to make a sequel - fine by me. One thing though, and I know it's the style, but perhaps make the graphics a little more...graphic, if you know what I mean. I don't know, do most people like that style?

Fantastic game. The missions steadily rise in challenge to prevent any feelings of repetition, the upgrades all make you feel more powerful without being more important than others, the achievements are satisfying without being mundane, the story is written extremely well without being too long, and the gameplay is challenging without being impossible. Overall, it's an amazing game that can only be nitpicked.

One problem though: The final boss (in the final mission) never shoots on the far left or far right sides, this means that you can just set your ship off to the side and wait to heal if you're ever low on health.
