Loom review

ACE (1990): "The Loom recipe is frustrating because it's almost perfect. The combination of audio tape, superb animation, sound, and storyline is potentially very powerful when it comes to narrative games. What's needed, however, is a mite more interaction with the environment and the people in it. That doesn't need a text parser, but imagine what this system would be like with a couple command icons and the ability to swap control/viewpoint between, say, three different characters. Then you've got something really special. As it is, we're left with a game that's great for younger players but will leave the rest of us craving a little more zap."

Collector's corner:

The original package offered an audio tape with a 30 minute audio drama that explained the nature and history of the Loom world, and the whereabouts of Bobbin's birth.
The package also offered an illustrated notebook, The Book of Patterns, supposedly belonging to apprentice weavers in the game world.
