Freddy Spaghetti is a running and jumping game. But you play a piece of spaghetti rather than a person. The game simulates the pasta’s physics as you use two trigger-buttons and a joystick to steer the main character across a wide variety of levels, which string together to tell the main story.

You play Freddy, a sentient spaghetti strand, brought to life in a laboratory machine by the mad but brilliant Dr. P Starr. At first, Freddy is happy to be alive, but soon he finds out life of a spaghetti strand isn't all that great. The story that unfolds spans several dozens of levels in which Freddy must avoid environmental hazards, is chased by the police and even travels through time!

By controlling the two ends of the spaghetti strand you can get Freddy to move, jump and sling around the area. While the physics-simulated controls seem awkward at first, they are simple enough to get used to for both novice and veteran players.

It is a fun game for players of all ages, but its quite absurd storyline will mostly appeal to younger players. The levels are quite diverse, ranging from obstacle navigation levels to timed objectives (being naughty and knocking on the front door and running away) to actual chase levels when running from the police. There is no real reason to replay levels other than for fun or for reliving the storyline.
