Game Review

Loom is a fantasy point-and-click adventure created by LucasArts and released initially in 1990. It's one of the most popular titles using the SCUMM engine, like the Indiana Jones and Monkey Island series.

The designer, Brian Moriarty, created something completely different compared to the previous LucasArts adventures. There is a complex story, the interface is not based on verbs and the puzzles are not the classical ones based on objects in the inventory.

The heart of Loom is the music. The protagonist Bobbin Threadbare can perform spells playing magical tunes with his staff. At the beginning he knows only 3 notes (C, D and E) and very simple spells but later he will learn new notes and he will understand how to play more tunes.

Loom is an amazing game that every retrogamer should play. We strongly suggest you to buy this game, and possibly find the original package from some collector. The original version included a 30 minute drama on cassette, plus a beautiful manual. A real gem.

GamesNostalgia has packed for you the CD version, with 256 color graphics and voice over, compressed to reduce size. Enjoy!
