Om detta spel

Long after the passing of the Second Shadow, when dragons ruled the twilight sky and the stars were bright and numerous, came the Age of the Great Guilds.
Blacksmiths. Shepherds. Clerics. Each dedicated to the absolute control of secret knowledge.
Another such Guild was the Weavers. Over the centuries, their craft transcended the limits of physical cloth, until they wove the very fabric of reality itself. Now, a strange power has swept the Weavers into oblivion, leaving behind one Weaver boy to unravel the mystery. Help young Bobbin rescue his Guild...and you just might save the universe from an unspeakable catastrophe.

AUDIO: Peaceful                                                 AESTHETIC: Beautiful
MEMORABILITY: Nostalgic                                 WORTH: Full PRice

PROS: Mysterious and alluring world that is rich with lore. Interesting musical system, no hand-holding. Nice voice-acting.

CONS: First game of a planned trilogy that never came to fruition. Starting the first game to a project that's been unfinished for around 25 years now may sound completely absurd to people who have never played Loom. Understandably so. Many different versions of Loom were released, and I'm disappointed to see that this was not a version cobbled together for the most content available.

OVERALL: A piece of point and click history.

SCORE: 10/10

Classic DOS game!

In the 25 years since its release, LOOM still finds a way to enchant all those who come across it.

An interesting and creative take on Tchaikovsky's ballet, Swan Lake, you play as the young Bobbin Threadbare of the Weavers who upon his birthday discovers that an evil is fastly approaching and intends to consume the world. When the Weavers depart from their world, Bobbin must venture from his village to reunite with his people and unwittingly uncovers a plot to seize control of all humanity.

Personally, I rate LOOM with a moderate difficulty. Those who are not familiar with the DOS action-adventure games of old may find the controls a bit tricky, especially in regards to Bobbin's Distaff, an instrument with which he can cast spells called Drafts that take the form of small pieces of music.

The key to this game is exploration, investigation, and patience. Interact with everything and everyone you come across and attempt spells on them to unlock bits of dialogue and helpful clues as to how to move forward throughout the game. Some puzzles are easy and quite straightforward while others.... not so much. The story, however, is worth all the trouble.

Classical music aficionados will also recognize samplings from the ballet within the game's score.

Length: 2-3 hours, if explored properly.

Loom is a great game. Unfortunately just not this version.

The version that Steam uses is a direct Windows port of the "talkie" CD released in 1992, which adds voice acting and VGA graphics, but at a cost. They removed a significant portion of the dialogue to fit the (uncompressed) voice acting on the disc, reducing the story and detail. Furthermore they censored many, many scenes. http://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=802320 has a pretty thorough list of censored and missing content. There isn't even almost any background music due to the dialogue taking all the space. As a result of all these, many scenes become rushed and lack the pacing or emotion they're supposed to have.

The voice acting isn't very good either, it's average at best in my opinion. The technical implementation is also somewhat bad due to being one of the first voice-acted games ever, as many lines are cut off abruptly at the end.

If you want to experience Loom, I recommend you to find the original EGA version or the FM-Towns version, neither of which are for sale sadly. The FM-Towns version has VGA graphics if you can't stand EGA, but the original looks really good in my opinion and has the best EGA graphics that I've ever seen. The best sound option in the EGA version is AdLib/SoundBlaster by default, but there is a patch available that adds a MT-32 option (note however that you either need a real MT-32 or know how to emulate one).

There must be something wrong with this adaptation. The dialogues are off, and it horribly feels like something is missing from the gameplay itself. There's no indication of the notes on the distaff, and the drafts are almost impossible to play. I had to give up after a while, and this is seriously aggravating because I remember this game very fondly.
I advise not to buy this version. It is horribly adapted.

Loom is unique. There is no game quite like it in the history of video games. As a professional singer and music teacher of many instruments, I still love the challenge of musical pattern recognition and recall of this wonderfully interesting game. I just saw the manual too and gosh, what a lovely throwback to the past when games really were works of art one could keep in the packaging and manuals that came with it. The music geek in me loves how one is supposed to use pencil to dictate the melodies one encounters in the game. It may be slow going for many of us (myself included) who are now so used to faster paced narratives in video games and other media; however, there is such a charm to it as well as some rather fiendish puzzles that had me cheating via online hint guides which incidentally one would have to pay and arm and a leg for with Lucas Arts hintlines, or so I hear. I give Loom 5 stars out of 5 for absolutely everything though I wish I could make bloody Bobbin Threadbare move far quicker- He is a tad snail like in his gait. Regardless, do play this gem while you have to chance. It is one of the best in the genre of adventure games and one of LucasArts finest offerings in this Musician's humble opinion :) Enjoy, Loom everyone. I am on my 4th playthrough and here's to many more :)
