Description

Sure Footing is a fast and frantic endless running about four friends saving their world from extinction. The world of Computra is under threat from the evil Ramrafstar and his ferocious minion Deletion Dave as they seek to destroy the partitions that hold everything together. Join Pixel Pete, Polly Polygon, Blip and Plunk as they outrun their newfound enemies across the sectors of the Computra hard disk: to warn their friends and find a way to stop Ramrafstar before their homeworld is destroyed.

History

What started out as a small academic project in procedural level generation systems brought not only Sure Footing but the formation of Table Flip Games as we now know it. In development over two years, the world of Computra and its characters slowly took form with every prototype build put on show. This has transformed an otherwise unknown research project into the game it is today.

Features

  • Four playable characters - Pixel Pete, Polly Polygon, Blip and Plunk - each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Play your own way! Customise each character with a variety of power-ups, buffs and costumes.
  • Visit the distant sectors of Computra and watch out for the weird and wonderful changes they bring.
  • A bright and funky soundtrack by Liz Rainsberry (Hashtag Dungeon).
  • Blends the best of classic platforming with fast-paced infinite runner gameplay.
