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.

First off: I loved it, the story was great, there were some really high adrenaline scenes the dialouges were witty ect. ect. ect. However I think there are some things that need to be hinted out -->NOT BECAUSE THE GAME IS BAD BUT BECAUSE I THINK YOU CAN DO MUCH BETTER<--

1. The Upgrades were very different considering if they actually helped: For example The projectile speed is useless compared to damage upgrades since obviously the number of situations in which high bullet speed is needed (in fact only when fighting against a very small target) is significantly outnumbered by the situations in which more damage is needed (about any given situation) But still this difference between the uses is not sufficently shown in the prices of these upgrades.

2.I know it is propably just experimental but having the upgrades shattered everywhere across the map is making rational and logical upgrading (what do i need first, how should i spend my money) rather difficult as you never exactly know where the upgrades are, what kind of upgrades you can afford ect. And pushes you into buying anything that is offered to you given you have the needed money. Although it would take out some of the realism i would rather reccomend you to stick with the old fashioned Menu-upgrades On that account i would like to note that i liked the idea of getting upgrades for mission quite well and also not always getting exactly what was promised in beforehand of the mission as i think this to make the game more realistic without throwing the balance off.

3. Normally this kind of 2d shooters are "bullet hells" given a large number of bullets a big screen and an agile character. Here although the screen was - in comparison to the ships- quite small and the hitbox of your ship quite big. The Consequences:
- There are quite few bullets on screen at a given time creating the impression that everyone on the screen is pressed together like having a gunfight inside of an elevator and you don´t feel like your full attention is actually required for dodging
- You have little time destroying the enemys as they pass relatively fast and since most of them shoot straight forward making you simply avoid most of your enemys ending up to kill almost nothing in many mission which makes you feel extra stupid when your mission was to kill everyone to begin with.
- Those previous two things make you feel somehow clumsy as the number of bullets is decreased in relation to other "bullet hell" games but you still get hit
- Also there were at times big problems with those objects that would block the entire way. Of course you can survive them when you have enough defense/firepower but generally i dislike situations in which the upgrades are neccecerially required in order to pass the mission.
This was a problem obviously arising from the mixture of rpg which relys on the protagonists strenght (if you can´t defeat it lvl up) and bullet hell which relys on the players strenght (learn the patterns and develop a strategy).

I repeat: I do not mean to tell you that your game is bad... it is not! And i liked it very much. Sorry for the bad English.

Great game. I loved the adventure and upgrading system. It takes a little bit to start getting some money. The shields are definitely the most useful upgrade to start out.

Needs a little more challenge.

This game was very good overall! The RPG style elements sucked me in from beginning to end. The gameplay was fun, the visual style was great to look at the entire time.. All in all I can only make one complaint: About half-way through the game, after that rough patch of earning your first much needed upgrades, but just a little before the final and most important battles, I noticed that there wasn't much challenge to be seen. Your ship was highly-powered up at that point, and there wasn't much in the way of resistance during most of the missions, compared to what you had to work with. I found I was challenging myself on some missions, doing things like forcing myself to survive without once using the blaster. Although self-challenge is fun, I'll admit I would of liked it better if the game had more challenge in its own difficulty on certain missions of the game.

The drive of the story, the rich world it takes place in and the RPG-style advancement really make this game different from most others of the genre.

However, the A.I. is kind of boring, and most of the challenge comes from the randomness of projectiles and the toughness of blockades. There could be more weapon uprades as in most other shmups, because this way it felt too much like it was the remake of an old ATARI game. I also found no real use to the reinforcements: I thought they'd stay a while longer, or grind off the screen, or at least help me take out the XXL boulders or something.

I also encountered a weird thing: when I first started the final mission, the game froze up and wouldn't refresh the screen. I don't know if it's a Flash plugin issue or if it's your error, so I'm treating it as a separate issue.

All in all, this game was worth playing, though this whole "Hero of the People" and commie rebellion against the tyrant Empire cliché didn't really suit my ideology, but I still fought for a good cause, so it didn't matter. :D
