X - shoot (keep it pressed)
C - call allies/reinforcements (if you have any)
Q - exit level
0 - mute
-/+ - adjust volume
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.

Way too many bugs for me. As another reviewer said, I really want to like this game - I like the art direction, I always have an appreciation for top-down shooters like this. However, when I started up the 2nd level, I wanted to upgrade first, I figured by getting out of the main game, I'd be able to navigate myself to an Upgrade Menu of sorts. Instead, no matter what key I pressed whether it be X to Proceed, C to Cancel, or Q to Exit, I was still forced into the 2nd level. This needs fixing ASAP. Secondly, I find games such as these (starts out difficult, gets easier as you progress) to be a hit or miss. Either you're not powerful enough, or the enemies are way too powerful. I think it's a little nonsensical that you start out with 9 HP and your enemies take off 2 HP per hit. What I'd recommend in future cases is that you start players out super overpowered, something happens to your ship after that and you're back at square one; that will ensure players can know what to expect when they get powerful, and chances are they'll be even more powerful than they were in the beginning.

All I'm really asking here though is that you fix that issue I mentioned. Solid game, just needs some fixing.

Upgrades become available when you reach the map (after the first 4 missions); this is a pretty big game, give it some time.

The enemies are simply too hard to kill and there aren't enough attack upgrades. I'm at 19 reputation and at least two missions are simply impossible with my current upgrades because a big enemy blocks the way, and my ship doesn't deal enough damage to take him down before I collide with him. I need more upgrades but all the available ones simply suck.

Vertical shooters should be all about the _attack upgrades_. Enemies should be dangerous but should also explode easily and you should have all different kinds of weapons to kill them. It sucks to have to pass enemies that you simply can't destroy, and it sucks to have a lame primary weapon that only shoots forward and does little damage.

Vertical shooters without grazing make me want to rip my teeth out. It's pretty, yeah, but the first handful of missions bored me to tears.

Maybe I've just been spoiled by danmaku, and I'm not even good at them.

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.
