Um Jammer Lammy is a spin-off of PaRappa the Rapper, developed by NanaOn-Sha studio. The production representing the rhythmic game genre was released on PS1 console.
W Um Jammer Lammy Players play the title Lammy - an introverted sheep that turns into the queen of every party only when she has a guitar in her hands. We meet the heroine at the moment when she tries not to be late for the concert of her band called MilkCan. After arriving at the place, the protagonist discovers that the group has a new vocalist, which is Chop Chop Master Onion. When the song played on stage comes to an end, a vacuum cleaner appears in place of Lamma's precious instrument, which leads the sheep to despair. Chop Chop Master Onion makes her aware, however, that a guitar occupying an important place in her heart will accompany her regardless of circumstances.
After all, it turns out that it was only a bad dream, and Lammy is only fifteen minutes left to reach his dream performance. Our task is to make sure that the heroine reaches the stage on time.
Just like in PaRappa the Rapper, playing in a PS1 platform released on the PS1 platform. Um Jammer Lammy is reduced to pressing the buttons displayed on the screen at the right moments. Our actions are supervised by a scoring system which gives us a mark reflecting our accuracy, so in the course of the struggle we have to show, first of all, reflexes, sense of rhythm and perceptiveness.
Due to the fact that Lammy is a guitarist, buttons correspond not to specific words, but to guitar tricks. The game consists of seven fictional stages, during which the sheep has to face seven teachers. An interesting mechanics has been implemented in the game, allowing Lamma to have a little bit of the so-called "freestyle" - then the master leaves the stage, allowing the heroine to play a spectacular solo.
In Um Jammer Lammy you can play alone or in the company of a second player; in multiplayer mode you can cooperate with your companion as well as enter a competition with him.
The visual side of Um Jammer Lammy is very similar to the earlier work of the NanaOn-Sha studio. Thus, the whole was enriched with an intense palette of colors, and although the environment is three-dimensional, the flat figures on stage look like cut out of paper.
