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.

[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.

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

In its own unique way, this game is simply perfect. The most surprising aspect of this game is that it's a story driven vertical shooter. Furthermore, this game has the best story of any shooter game I have ever played. By the end of the game, I really feel that my actions have made an enormous difference. The gameplay is also good, even if it is a little bit limited. Personally, I wolud have it if the game had multiple weapon types( such as a scattering shot or a laser that pierces through multiple enemy ships). However, that's just a personal preference of mine, and I think that it shouldn't affect the game's score. The upgrade system was a very nice touch, as it helped keep the game interesting. The graphics are good. They make the game look like a retro space shooter, and for that, I like them. Lastly, the music is very good. Overall, this is a an original game that is perfect for what it is. Congratulations!

This may be the best game on Newgrounds. I lost count of how many times I have played this game. The story and gameplay are both great. The only thing I can find wrong with it is that it's too short. I really wish there was more to do in this game; that would be awesome.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It's certainly a very good game, just not the kind of game I get into very well.
