Summary

A bit short, but an amazing game.

The Good

This game was very amazing at its time. Being a huge fan of graphic adventures, I couldn't help falling in love with its plot and its characters. Loom also has a very innovative gameplay, where the typical "actions" of other games are replaced by combining music tunes. If you like music, you could even play at harder levels only knowin' the tunes!!

The Bad

The only disappointing thing in Loom, it was its length. It wasn't very long, and it was very easy to remember all the puzzles, so it hasn't a very high replayable value. More puzzles or a longer plot would have been great.

The Bottom Line

A good game, despite its length. Very different from other graphic adventures, without a complex inventory, but with a lot of magical and musical stuff in the gameplay.
