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.

You certainly invested a lot of time into making this game. It shows. The gameplay's solid, the art's consistent, and there's much to read before the missions.

I didn't like this game. It's a bare game that accepts some sort of space theme, but never elaborates or goes into detail. What bothers me is that you name all of these little places, habitats, sectors, but you did not name the main character. Rather, you left it a some generic title "traitor" which never expands into a necessary theme in the game.

Now, you know what other game does that and I truly hate them for it? Pokemon. They're willing to insert 200-some pokemon each game, but refuse to leave its main characters any identity to go on.

The game is lacking, but I read a bit on the Internet and see that you wanted to focus on the context. That's fine and all, but I think you could get a better game experience with you just associated all of the dialogue to character portraits, rather than station names.

There was really nothing too special about this game. It has a good solid base, but upgrades are boring and there's little sense of progression since improvements have no visible effect (Attack speed aside). Once you start finding the regeneration upgrades, you may as well have already won. At that point, you can almost just hold X and not move, crashing your way through entire fleets. And crash through fleet after fleet you do, with little to no variations between them. I did enjoy the alien life form levels though, mainly because they offered a slight change of scenery.
There's nothing terribly wrong here, there's just nothing incredibly right either.

nice story and retro style graphics but the controls are not working properly, which made it impossible for me to play, since my ship would at some point not stop going in a certain direction

I like vertical shooters but this one bored me. I was surprised I couldn't move forward. Don't really understand the appeal but congrats on making it to the front page.
