Game description: The original rap star is back in the house! This time, Parappa won a 100 year supply of noodle products. He liked it at first but later got sick of it.

He then decided to try and be a grown up, but he noticed something: everything in his town is turning into noodles! So join Parappa and a cast of new and familiar characters on a mission of the utmost importance: preventing the Evil Noodle Syndicate from turning everything in Parappa Town into noodles before it takes over the world. See if you have enough rhythm to keep the beat with everyone's favorite rappin' puppy. Check out the funky fresh tunes that are guaranteed to get your toes tappin' and your head bobbin'.
