X - shoot (keep it pressed)

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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing, just amazing. The game itself, even without the deep, beautiful storyline, was ridiculously fun. The story was pure awesome. The message...Sweet Pasta, I love this game.

To name a few points: It was a bit intimidating and boring at first, it took a moment to get into it, y'know?
Fighting practically yourself at the end was...well, it was a great challenge and I enjoyed it. But it could be considered just a tad bit to difficult, maybe. Maybe not.

Overall, great game. Glory to you.

it is awsome cause i really love games with upgrades


Rated 5 / 5 stars

By far, this is one of the best games I've ever played, be it flash or commercial. I love it so much that this is actually the second time I've played it, the first being back when it first came out. The design of the levels, the unique appearance, the way the upgrades work, the storyline... everything is just so immersive and interesting. My biggest complaint is that it isn't longer, and it isn't a short game to begin with.

I hope very much that there is a sequel, or at least a spiritual sequel, in the works.

I played this game 2 years ago and I remember it being one of the best shooters I've ever played on this site.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is probably the first time I've ever finished a top-down shooter, because they're really not my kind of game. The story in this one sucked me in from the very beginning - I didn't shoot any of the supply ships because I already felt sympathetic. Without ever seeing a single character, I was drawn in and wanted to win for more than just the sake of beating a game. That's a rare quality.

Beyond a really interesting, well developed story, the game also had good mechanics. Even though it was a little frustrating to be slow in the beginning, I still felt like the controls were responsive - there was none of the sliding around that plagues a lot of flash games. I was generally able to remember where the upgrades were located and I was able to prioritize what I needed pretty well. I think you struck a really good balance between being challenging and being fun, because I didn't feel too defeated when I didn't beat a mission on the first try. There was always something else to do until I was upgraded enough to do it, rather than just grinding away on the same stuff (I only had to mine for a couple minutes total).

I really can't suggest any improvements. Great job!
