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.

Game was Ok. I made it past the intro levels to give it a chance but I'm not fond of the graphics, made it kind of difficult to see the enemies though. In my opinion you should have just made a shop instead of having to explore around to find the different upgrades, that was pretty annoying. Pretty much while I stopped playing. Nice attempt though.

The story flow and atmosphere control are quite successful... but that still can't make up for all the shortcomings. First, the fighting gets repetitive over time. For shooters this is usually overcome by upgrades on the firing and the change in enemy attacking abilities, bad sadly this game has little of either. Most of the upgrades are heavily defensive and only one of the offensive upgrades changes the layout of the bullets. (not everyone enjoys playing as a tank... at least I don't) Enemies becomes tougher and can fire faster but that's it. Calling allies is an interesting concept but the limit of one use per battle made it not so tangible.
I guess I'd appreciate this game so much more if there are more visible offensive upgrades and harder bosses.

I'm a bit bitter because I managed to sink what must've been 3 hours into a merely alright game. The difficulty curve was definately messy, but I always find that with games that base themselves on upgrade systems- it starts off extremely hard and it ends with you having godlike power. Gameplay itself was a bit stiff, and that's something that really should have been dealt with for a game of this length. I understand the ship wasn't meant to have any glide or anything but it just made it boring, generic, and lacking in it's own personality. Aesthetically, it was very good, though got bland after awhile, loosing immersion. The story for the most part I ignored, perhaps it was necessary to make this game an experience rather than something generic, but all I could gather was that I was a rebel and I was fighting the imperials. Which is basically Stars Wars, no matter what way you look at it (which of course is itself a tired cliche. Yes, I agree that the words of the people is the wrath of gods or whatever, but this game did little to extend on the concept. I got the impression this wanted to teeter between an art game and arcade fun, and to be honest it didn't shine as either. Functional, really, it did kill time, but made me feel guilty for it.
