Tips for Buying EarthBound

May 20th, 2012 | EarthBound, Uncommon Knowledge, Videos

There are sentry robots in the Monotoli Building in EarthBound, and usually there are some you can’t avoid getting into battle with. It turns out that if you use Skip Sandwiches and time things just right, you CAN get past them!

The video above was done using some hackery to jump straight to that portion of the game without having to play through everything, that’s why Jeff isn’t there and Ness’ items are weird. But I’m fairly sure the trick will still work in a normal game. If anyone gets a chance, try it out next time you play and let me know your findings!

5 Comments to Avoiding Sentry Robots

I’ve actually surprised this is news worthy. I’ve dodged the Sentry Robots numerous times in my playthroughs. As a matter of fact, I actually recorded myself dodging the robots in my Let’s Play. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9oTumC4s_s&list=PL4967CF82192E0DE0&index=21&feature=plpp_video and cut to 4:33

Yep! I did this earlier today, on my M1+2 copy actually.
The hardest ones to avoid are the ones in the hallway at 0:13 since there is no room for error at ALL. Took me several tries, even though it’s just some lame straight hallway. 😛

I would think that Jeff could get touched by the enemies too, but I rewatched it a few and I guess if Ness goes through the doors in time it should work.

Yeah, Like EpicSatellite, I did this a whole bunch in my random nnormal playthroughs thinking it was normal :/ lol, I have super powers ^_^

I was also thinking Jeff might get touched and trigger a battle, imma have to try and find out.
