Um Jammer Lammy
Description official description
Introducing Lammy, a totally rockin' guitarist. In day-to-day life, she's quite timid, shy, and wimpy - but put a guitar in her hands, and she'll blow you away! Help Lammy get to her latest gig on time, and face obstacles such as flaming buildings, out-of-control airplanes, and even getting trapped in Hell.
In this sequel to PaRappa The Rapper you play as Lammy, a guitarist for MilkCan - the coolest, hippest band ever! While PaRappa focused on lyrics, with each button controlling a different word; Lammy is a guitar player, so naturally, each button controls a different note on the guitar. Lammy will encounter seven different teachers on her travels to the big gig, so either follow their lessons accurately, or do even better - improvise and blow them all away with your axe. The teacher will then step away for you to go it solo for an even better performance.
Lammy improves over PaRappa in a multitude of ways. Rather than just being a single player experience, you can now play the game with a friend. Any stages that you unlock can be played either co-operatively or competitively. If you don't have a friend to play co-operatively with, you can also get the computer to take on the role of your partner. After finishing the initial game, PaRappa also makes a return, allowing you to play through the game again with raps instead of Lammy's guitar.

The U.S. release of the game was partially censored. Originally, Lammy died at the beginning of Stage 6 by slipping on a banana peel dropped by P.J. Berri (from PaRappa's gang) and ended up in Hell, where Teriyaki Yoko would agree to resurrect her if she played in her performance. In the U.S. version, the whole scene was changed to Lammy getting her belt caught on the door of Paul Chuck's shop and getting hurled to an island, where Teriyaki Yoko needs for her to play before she'll get Lammy off the island. Chop Chop Master Onion's lyrics in his song were also changed to reflect this alteration.
The original Japanese release has curious packaging: the jewel case is packed backwards, and there's a hole cut in the inlay though which the disc can be seen. Another game with similar packaging is Vib-Ribbon, which also happens to be developed by NanaOn-Sha.
Completing the game unlocks PaRappa as a playable character, complete with his own versions of each song. However, the first stage with Chop Chop Master Onion (Lammy's dream) isn't available to play with PaRappa. Curiously, a version of this song performed by PaRappa appears on the game's soundtrack, though unlike the other stage music, PaRappa's version is not remixed at all and simply swaps out Lammy's guitar for PaRappa's rapping.
An official soundtrack featuring all the music from the game, including the cutscene cues and PaRappa's tracks, was released by Sony in November 1999.
