* ''Comments'': Generally a LighterAndSofter Halloween rom hack alternative to ''VideoGame/TheHalloweenHack'', though not without it's dark moments, Hallow's End is an exceptionally well put together mod that not only completely reconstructs the game from the ground up, but manages to tell a rather interesting and darker story without losing the original spirit of VideoGame/EarthBound. With completely new areas, enemies, and attacks, it's something that could be considered a game in it's own right, and is almost as long as VideoGame/EarthBound. Even if it isn't Halloween time, it's a mod that should be checked out by any VideoGame/EarthBound fan.

* ''Synposis'': Following the trio of Sally, Clyde, and Craig, what started out as a Halloween like many others quickly becomes an adventure no one expects, as they're attempt to get some candy from the OldDarkHouse ends up with Halloween apparently never existing, and their neighbors forgetting they exist. Determined to figure out exactly what's going on, the group soon begins to find out there may be more going on than what appears.

These are recommendations made by {{Troper}}s for ''{{Earthbound}}'', all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. ''No-name recommendations will be '''{{zapped}}'''.'' Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

* ''Synopsis'': This is mostly the same story as the original, but now with Paula ("Jenny") heading up the party and Ness ("Jimmy") as her second. (Also, the Dalaamese Prince from EarthBound has been swapped out for a Dalaamese Princess and shipped with the geek, Tony is now Jewish, and Pokey/Porky's replacement looks [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed suspiciously similar]] to Michael Moore.)

** kt-low: I second that; thanks for the tip; halfway through the game and I'm quite impressed. Despite being labeled as a game "for girls" it doesn't feel girly at all, aside from the [=NPCs=] referring to you as a lady. They are still funny, a lot of trivial text is changed, and it retains the Earthbound atmosphere: sometimes breaking the fourth wall, other times making fun of the game itself (Like the library receptionist who's just giving maps for anyone for "no reason") and the signs. Oh, the signs. They are more fun to read than before. "Onett: The flower of Eagleland" becomes "Onett: Malaria free since 1965." Overall, it's almost the same game but it's still a fresh, nice, and humorous Earthbound experience.

* ''Synposis'': Starting off several months after the events of EarthBound, Bounty Hunter Varik is hired by ex-mayor B. H. Prikle to track down a monster that recently killed two townsfolk. Though things start out light-hearted enough, things take a ''much'' darker tone as Varik begins to delve deeper into the mind of one very disturbed old man...
* ''Comments'': Probably one of the more well-known EarthBound hacks, the Halloween hack is a very interesting take on the events that happened after EarthBound, and what would happen if [[spoiler: the choosen four didn't return.]] Be warned though, once you leave Twoson, the game takes a ''much'' [[DarkerandEdgier darker]] (and [[NintendoHard harder]]) turn. Definitely not for the faint of heart. It also changes up the game mechanics quite a bit in that the normally {{Useless Useful Spell}}s are pretty much needed if you want to have any hope of surviving early game, and stay useful throughout the late game. Be warned though, it can get a bit [[LevelGrinding grindy]] at points, but other than that it's a pretty interesting and challenging hack for experienced EarthBound players. Oh! And also, [[spoiler: ''remember to press that B button!'']]
