I love how this game looks, not too fast-paced and the palette is just right. Any chance of a Mac version?

Thank you! Currently I'm focusing all my efforts on the PC release.
A Mac port is theoretically possible, but I will need to borrow a Mac from a friend to figure out how to create a build. It will happen either near final release or just after that.

Thanks for the purchase Manytoo!
I'm sure I saw Loom as a kid in a computer magazine, but never actually played it.
Currently there are 2 Playable Levels with Boss Fights! The 3rd Level (Jungle) is about to be released alongside various improvements and fixes. Check back soon!

Thanks for the reply.
I really like your game, the character and world design are great. The gameplay is very good; magical tricks, mana to refill, walking skeletons to kill and some puzzle games... all that staff can make your game an epic adventure, and the difficulty is good. I think the game diserve a small story (few cutscenes as introducing maybe) and for the bad point, the ladders are a bit tricky (or maybe that's a choice?).
Nice work, all the best for the rest.

Thanks for your Feedback! Next public update will have Fixed Ladders! They are working almost perfectly on my build here. I started working on a intro cutscene but it still needs some work. More story elements are going to be added in a later update. Thank you for your patience!

Graphic style remembers me of the old C=64 games, I loved so as a kid.
Has a nice "childhood memories" - touch. :)
