Commentary

Alexander takes a mint.

This game is fairly well written, which is in stark contrast to the other games in the King's Quest series, which are simply painful.

If, however, you like things that are so bad that they are absurdly bad (and considering what website you're visiting, that's not unlikely,) King's Quest IV has moments of morbidity that may make it worthwhile: Graham's scream as he falls off the icy cliffs, and the narrator's jesting about "dying for a drink." But don't even try playing the endgame without a walkthrough.
