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.

good game, but I think I'm stupid or something...how in the world do you buy the upgrades that are in the menu?

It was okay. Gameplay was fun for the most part, but the difficulty curve is extremely unbalanced. The first few missions were moderately challenging, but after the first weapon upgrade I found myself tearing through even the advanced missions without even trying. It's only at the very end that things finally started to pick up again. Being able to choose my own path is nice, but I would have preferred a more linear progression instead of having to slog through several clusters of beginner levels to complete everything.

Saving doesn't seem to work. Or maybe there's a trick to it? any advice would help, thanks.

The game should autosave between missions. If it doesn't, could it be your Flash settings?

Everything except the gameplay is enjoyable.

The prologue in particular was very good. It really got me in to the game. The way the game opened up was a revelation moment and excited me initially, but the plot driven premises of the game disappeared and I was left feeling empty. Repeating the standard missions for money and reputation to open up new paths is a cool concept, but not when the gameplay is setup in a way that the stages can't deviate from the mostly standard formula of watching objects fly by.

Your hitbox in relation to the total game screen is disproportionately huge, making the game feel very chunky. There is not much movement space and removes room for some really interesting stage designs. Since there were upgrades I figured the problem might alleviate itself as I become stronger and faster, but the core problem persisted and I couldn't really get myself to enjoy the game in the end.

Good idea. Good plot. Good graphics. Boring game. Sleep inducing soundtrack.

PS: I was playing Firefox, there was some freezing up and control issues, but I didn't put that into consideration for the review.

I liked the beginning with its classic look but once I got the the level to branch out I was unable to continue playing. Might be an issue on my end (I am using Chrome) so I don't know. I'll check back later to see if it has been resolved but what I saw I liked. Keep up the good work
