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.

I have not seen a game this well designed in a long time. Great concept art too. I hope Newgrounds will include html5 submissions someday since that code is a whole lot more consistent and reliable than Actionscript.

I love this game. I played through it twice. I like the depth and the freedom to do things in any order. The music is good too, if a bit repetitive. Some tracks reminded me of the music style of StarCraft 1.

The bosses could have been a bit more interesting though imho. Most bosses don't really require a lot of strategy, they just float there doing nothing, most don't shoot anything, and those that do are easy to avoid. In some cases you could even get infinite money and never die by just going to the left and right of the screen, keeping the x key depressed, and get money from all the side-enemies of the boss coming from the top of the screen.

It would have been cool if there were multiple endings.

So hehe, my text about the bad parts was longer than the text about the good parts, but my 5 star score should show how awesome I find the game! :)

Very Very Good game! Sadly, there are only few games who are worth playing like this one. This proves that graphics isn't SUPPOSED to be the best asset in the game!

Started playing a few hours ago. I now have all the achievments. I was not expecting to enjoy this game so much as it was fairly repetetive. But every mission had surprises, the way the enemy ships appear is always unexpected and well planned. I liked that I could pick a different missio when one got way too hard. You need more difficulty labels, as many medium ones were at least twice as hard as other medium ones. I wish I'd known how easy the Arena was for making quick cash. The upgrades were all great. However, the regen one made me pretty much unkillable. I was on the or minig mission and I never shot a single bullet, i just crashed into every single rock trying to kill myself. I couldn't, it's actually not possible. So although it got pretty darn easy suddenly, the last few missions still proved to be somewhat challenging. I'd say the difficulty was, though chaotic, pretty balanced. Great game! I almost forgot to mention the story, which was very engrossing. Every mission made me feel like I had made a real change, that I had really done something to affect the lives of others. I did not think I could possibly become immersed in a retro looking shooter like this, but I was. The graphics and music were not over the top amazing, but they were enjoyable and gave a very nice effect. This game is so very flawless.
