This game won an award for its music and its duel playability as an adventure/educational game is why its 9.2 out of 10, according to the latest poll. I used to play this game constantly; its how I learned basic notes; but unfortunately, the disks degraded over time I think there is a version out there to download, but it could be only the demo. And if your wonndering why games this old should be dowloaded or even remembered, 2 words sum it up: Replay value. It is what defines the games I chose as classics. You want to play them again, whether for nostalgia sake or becasue they are still fun even after all this time. If you doubt my words, play the game.

Oh man!! I remember LOOM! That game was great! I played it on my ex-boyfriend's Turbo Graphx a loooooong time ago. He still has the disk, actually... It was indeed very educational and entertaining.

My Mom was watching "Swan Lake" the other day and when I heard the song I immediately flashed back to this game. I miss it terribly.

Nice work on the Sim and thanks for the good memories!

"Hello, my name is Bobbin Threadbare. Are you my mommy" Thanks, just love the memories of these Lucas Arts classics. Ever tried "Grim Fandango"? Dark, but fun.

I love LOOM. I've played it since I was just a little kid. Thank God I still have it on my computer.

Thanks for making Bobbin.

man i wish i could play it again. Loom was the first PC game I ever finished! Even though i didn't understand any English back then, it was still great. Too bad I can't find a copy to play again these days.

This is still one of my favorite games, and Boobbin was the ideal protagonist-- snarky, a bit clumsy, unintentionally unwinding the universe.... ah, memories.
