X - shoot (keep it pressed)

P - pause
M - menu (map only; you can select allies from here)

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]

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.

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.

Great game bro (: challenging too, especially when u get gang -.- lol but it was cool. i wish there were a few more upgrade that could of been put in it. Even thou this reminds of the old games with the aliens and start to move faster and stuff XD but -hi5 i enjoyed and beats, wouldnt mind some more techno!

Great game, the music is awesome and the difficulty is enjoyable. Now that I finished it I've noticed that none of the medals were unlocked. And pressing Load takes me to the ending sequence, so I can't enter the Achievements screen, and I can't go back to play the two Nyx missions. Sigh...


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow, this game is great.
First of all, classic gameplay
(Reminds me of 1984 which reminds me of Touhou even though Touhou is a bullet hell game))
Really nice style which you seem to be good with.
Interesting music, to say the least. Very fitting to the game.
Interesting story line,
alot of upgrades aaaand...
MEDALS (Collect ALL the medals!)
But yeah, the point is, this is a best of the best here on Newgrounds, in my opinion.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I would pay for this. The gameplay is typical of the average vertical flight shooter, but this combined with the upgrades adds a whole new level to the experience. The element of choice helps too. The graphics are unique, and the music fits the game very well. The only major con is that there isn't more of an option to stay with the Augustun Hegemony, and things are a bit too black and white for my tastes. The story is simple, but it makes you feel like you're making a difference.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow. I find that most flash games lack a story, but this had a really good one. The moral choice you make at the beginning is actually a really tough one, which rivals Mass Effect. Not to mention the bosses are all really original and stand out from each other. The only problem I have with this so far is that there's just so much stuff! There's enough content in this simple flash to be an XBLA game.
