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.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

good game, but there a some bugs. like to the side disapearing ships, two cannons that shoot like one, two cannons but they do damage like one, speed upgrades for the cannons are not fast enough and, after getting speed upgrades for the ship, the movements are lagging so that i crush sometimes into enemys/rocks.

I think this is a great game. You should definitely make a sequel. It has a nice story. Also, I really like how upgrades work, I think it's pretty original. If you do make another game, there should definitely be other ships, with different stats or maybe different mechanics or firepower. It would also be cool if upgrades had an aesthetic effect on the ship.

Excellent game! The animation and the controls are smooth and it has an interesting story line. Although I encountered a bug. I finished all the missions on some of the locations and got the upgrades but the counter still says that there are missions and upgrades left.

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.

Could have used customizable controls for 5 stars. I hate when I have to use my right hand for movement and left for actions, i'm so used to wasd.
