In addition to this, the EarthBound universe draws heavily from pop culture. The best part is that the campaign's slogan was "This Game Stinks. It even came with scratch 'n sniff trading cards at the back, one of which was a 'mystery scent' that turned out to be pizza that you could mail in to Nintendo and get a free air freshener which bore the image of a pizza man from the game. Even EarthBound's box was an advertisement: Despite the hype and effort, EarthBound did not sell well in America.
Even today the simple graphics serve as a stumbling block for many potential gamers, but they belie EarthBound's brilliant plot and dialogue. View via SSL to Login.

All the info is here! How do you use Starmen. In addition, cities and roads all share the same size, rather than the traditional overworld camera, making no difference between cities or towns and the big world outside them. Enemy encounters are not random, as well, but rather start when the player collides with an enemy shown on the screen. Depending on the type of enemy and the player's level, one's speed can vary or they can even run away from the player instead of chasing him.
Also, colliding with an enemy facing away from the player results in the player having an extra turn to attack, which applies, too, to enemies who manage to trap the player from behind. By the time Ness and his friends become strong enough to virtually defeat an enemy without taking damage, the battle scene will be skipped, and the player will be given the victory immediately. Players and enemies have a set number of Hit Points HP and they take turns to do actions, which include attacking each other, using items, using special psychic skills PSI or trying to run away.
EarthBound (Video Game) - TV Tropes
As the attacks continue, the HP from both sides will decrease. A character or enemy with HP 0 becomes unconscious and the battle ends when either side has lost all its fighters. An original mechanic from EarthBound is the way the player's characters' HP is presented. They are shown as an odometer-like box which slowly decreases as damage is taken. When a character has received enough damage to collapse "mortal damage" , they will still be able to fight, be cured, or run away before the actual shown number is 0.
The same way, if a battle ends before the message showing a character has collapsed appears, he or she will not. Giygas reprises his role from EarthBound Beginnings as the main villain.
Meet Our Brave Young Heroes
Along with his army consisting of Starmen and other aliens, robots, evil people, animals and other bizarre enemies, he is determined to stop the Chosen Four from reaching the eight "Your Sanctuary" locations and wants to conquer the Earth, and, in the end, the universe. Pokey Minch , Ness's neighbor, helps Giygas in his plans, influenced by his evil power. Near the city of Onett , a meteor suddenly crashes, waking up thirteen-year-old boy Ness. While policemen investigate the area, Ness meets his arrogant and cowardly neighbor Porky Minch. Later that night, he wakes Ness up so that he can help him search for his little brother Picky.
After finding him, a bee-like insect, Buzz Buzz , appears from the meteor, telling Ness about the cosmic destroyer alien Giygas who seeks to have the universe, and how he's come desperately from the future in an effort to find him, for he is one of the Chosen Four who are able to stop Giygas. As Buzz Buzz indicates, Ness now needs to find eight "Your Sanctuary" locations to unite his power to the Earth's, collecting melodies from said sanctuaries in the Sound Stone , given to him by Buzz Buzz.

Later, Ness 's party takes a boat from Summers to the desert land Scaraba. They find the secret to defeat Giygas there. Poo 's master takes him from the party for some time so that he can learn a hidden PSI power. The three children then meet Dungeon Man in the desert, a half-dungeon, half-man hybrid which in reality is a dungeon maker named Brick Road. They receive help from him and, afterwards, find a useful submarine inside, which lets them go to the Deep Darkness.
There, after a long swamp-like area, Master Belch , now more powerful and known as Master Barf, confronts the team.
