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.

The first thing that struck me was the art style. Very retro but modern at the same time. I loved it straight away. But after a few minutes I felt I'd soon get bored of this game. I can't really remember why, but in the end, the humour, style, balancing, progression, open-endedness whereas the game type is pretty much linear by definition, odd bit of humour, multiple "minigames" for lack of a better term, and all the hundreds of other bits that are to numerous to mention came together into one really quite extraordinary game. And although I'm not particularly fond of vertical scrollers, I kept playing this till 2.30 in the morning, and it has officially made me a fan of Jonas Kyratzes.

Also worth mentioning are the intro and outro. Whoever says that text doesn't belong in games is a fool, and anyone who says games aren't art have never played one like this.

Keep up the good work.

Very simple and addictive.. it does what it needs to do. A nice difficulty the whole way through, it never got to the point where it was too easy.

A couple of problems like the fact I had the medal for 250 ores mined and not the one for 100. Also mission counter was still at 2 for one of the sections at the end. Other than that, great game.

good game....for all that dont know how to call an ally go to MENU then press ALLIES and select one ally by pressing X


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Awesome game. I felt like it could have used more depth in customization rather than just having linear upgrades. That would allow for more replayability. Also, while the graphics were cool, I'd prefer more details and animation. Overall, this was a great game well worth hours spent.
