Gameplay[ edit ] Ness, Paula, Jeff, and Poo right to left walking the Summers beachfront EarthBound features many traditional role-playing game elements: Along the way, the player fights battles against enemies and the party receives experience points for victories.
Rather than using an overworld map screen like most console RPGs of its era, the world is entirely seamless, with no differentiation between towns and the outside world.
The game uses oblique projectionwhile most 2D RPGs use a "top down" view on a grid or an isometric perspective. When physical contact occurs between a character and an enemy, the screen dissolves into battle mode. In combat, characters and enemies possess a certain amount of HP.
Blows to an enemy reduce the amount of HP. If a specific type of enemy is defeated, there is a chance that the character will receive an item after the battle. In battle, the player is allowed to choose specific actions for their characters.
Once each character is assigned a command, the characters and enemies perform their actions in a set order, determined by character speed. Whenever a character receives damage, the HP box gradually "rolls" down, similar to an odometer. This allows players an opportunity to heal the character or win the battle before the counter hits zero, after which the character is knocked unconscious.
An affirmative response brings Ness, conscious, back to the last telephone he saved from, with half the money on his person at the time of his defeat, and with other party members showing as still unconscious.
Because battles are not random, tactical advantages can be gained. If the player physically contacts an enemy from behind indicated by a translucent green swirl which fills the screenthe player is given a first-strike priority.
However, this also applies to enemies, who can also engage the party from behind in this case, the swirl is red. Neutral priority is indicated by a blue swirl.
Additionally, as Ness and his friends become stronger, battles with weaker enemies are eventually won automatically, forgoing the battle sequence, and weaker monsters will begin to flee from Ness and his friends rather than chase them.
In towns, players can visit various stores where weapons, armor, and items can be bought. Weapons and armor can be equipped to increase character strength and defense, respectively.
In addition, items can be used for a number of purposes, such as healing. Towns also contain several other useful facilities such as hospitals where players can be healed for a fee.
