"The prologue and the beginning of the game are pretty good. You're immediately thrown into an adventure by the Mystery Client plot-hook, the writing is humorous, but not in a laborious way, and there are lots of things you can play around with. However, my frustrations began when I saw the inventory limit and all the seemingly pointless objects I could carry around. Come to find out, most of these objects are red herrings that you will never use in the game, and will pick up and drop umpteen times in order to try them on various "alien" puzzles. The responses you get on interacting with some of them are funny, but I think it's a bit of overkill; one or two red herrings aren't that bad, but five thrown in at the very beginning of the game is a little much."

"It feels very much like you actually have a Hitchhiker's Guide, filling in some of the details of the culture of the Universe, making comments on the different aliens you see. The writing isn't trying to be literary as much as it wants to be funny, and overall it succeeds at that. There are a few awkward phrases, and one error of the infamous 'it's/its' brand, but overall the humor and lighthearted tone really shine through." (Jessica Knoch)

"On the whole, I found 'Dutch Dapper IV' a pleasant and entertaining way to spend an hour and a half. Once you're done, you can play with the long Amusing list, and read synopses of the first three Dutch Dapper adventures, in case you missed them. (Since they are either in Dutch or nonexistent, it's pretty likely that you did.)" (Emily Short)
