Dangerous Dave 4, or Dave Goes Nutz is the sequel to Dangerous Dave 3 Dave's Risky Rescue, and the fourth and final in the Dangerous Dave series. Interestingly it is labelled as Dave 3 in-game, possibly because Dangerous Dave 1 was ignored. (It is notable that it uses the extension .DAV, while its predecessor uses .DD3)

In this installment Dave must rescue his younger brother Delbert yet again, again time from Dr Nemesis who has kidnapped him and trapped him in his insane asylum. Like most Dave games, the story is scant at best, but this is the second appearance of Dr Nemesis.

Like Commander Keen Dreams who's engine it uses, there is no music in the game, and indeed the game is a cut-down version of Dreams, with saved games starting at the beginning of a level, fewer sounds and tiles, and almost no story. It is even more cut down than its predecessor with almost no sound at all and levels completed in record time.

File formats


Dave 3 uses the compressed version of the AudioT Format to store sound. The main audio file for the game is called AUDIO.DAV. The associated AUDIOHED and AUDIODCT files are stored in the executable.

There is no music in the game and there were no plans to include it, unlike in Keen Dreams.
