Another strategy for avoiding level 2 is actually standing still and blocking. As soon as he gets near, dodge the opposite way and wait. Watch his animation carefully because he kick flips when he's coming back. Dodge again and you're golden.
A s parappa, a way to trick players who use this strategy is to jump on your turn. this shortens the kick flip animation and actually has you turn faster.
THIS IS ACE
All the most dangerous and skilled parappa players were in the private beta.....they had combos and they would use the boombox frequently. Alot of them leveled up pretty fast.......Monkee-King being one of them.......thats why i said in other threads that whoever think parappa is weak was not in the first beta
