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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

A fantastic game. A driving plot and great gameplay make this seem like less of a flash game and more like a console or pc game. Keeps me up well past midnight playing this game as it is such a gripping game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This game is fantastic. Wonderful RPG shoot-em up (if a bit easy in the latter 1/3rd of the game) with a compelling if simple story. Had me hooked for hours across 3 days to finish. Only constructive criticisms I have are to make the mid-late game a but harder (which can be difficult for a non-linear game) and maybe put in different kinds of weapon upgrades.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

It was a great game and it has inspired me to try to make games with the stencyl engine as well. Very well executed battles and a brilliant art style make this game stand out.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

It's pretty awesome, I must say. It's not exactly the most challenging game ever (it's pretty hard at the beginning, but then as you get upgrades it gets pretty easy, though the last two levels are not exactly a cakewalk even when maxed out). It also has pretty simple graphics. Nevertheless I like how it fuses shooter and RPG, and I liked the storyline and how every mission underscores just how corrupt the Hegemony is. So 5/5 for me.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very nice! This had just about all the things that I enjoy in a game: fairly simple gameplay mechanism, neither too easy to be boring nor too hard to be frustrating, a logical upgrading system, and an interesting coherent plot. I have to think real hard to come up with something critical to say about this game, and even then, it's pretty minor: I never felt that it was quite clear on scanning missions if it made any difference whether you shot at things or not. Yeah, you can get through all of them without shooting, but if you go in and blow everything up, will that count against you in some way? I guess the only other thing to mention is that I've never personally seen a game with a graphic style like this, and it was pretty cool just to look at!
