Traitor Walkthrough

Traitor is a vertical shooting game reminiscent of the Phoenix series of shooters on for Texas Instruments graphing calculators. This shoot 'em up (or SHMUP) features simplistic graphics, intuitive controls, and a brilliant soundtrack.

Traitor follows the story of a cadet entering the service of the Augustan Hegemony. You don't play shooting games for story though, you play them for action, right? Not to worry, Traitor has lots and lots of action! The game is played like a classical vertical shooter. Navigate your ship through each level, blasting enemies from space as you go. At the end of each level, you will have to face a powerful boss enemy. Your progress is automatically saved, so you will be able to continue from where you left off the next time that you play. Be sure to select the "Load" option on the main menu, however, because your prior game will be deleted if you start a new one.

After the first set of missions in Traitor, you will be free to roam the universe as you choose. You can take on additional missions to earn money and purchase upgrades for your ship. I advise you to start in the Razna Convolution (the yellow cloud in the upper-left corner of the map). The missions are easier in this area , and there are two important upgrades that you can buy here to increase your ship's armor and speed. Some places will have additional missions for you to complete, so be sure to check back with them often.

Traitor may not have dazzling anime-inspired graphics or thousands of bullets on the screen at one time like "danmaku"-style shooting games, but it is still challenging and fun to play. This shoot 'em up combines a classic style of gameplay with the contemporary idea of upgrades. The storyline also makes Traitor a unique shooting game (for those of you that want to get right to the action, don't worry; you can skip the story and still enjoy the game).
