Anyone ever played this old win 3.x game? It's a roguelike game with tile grpahics. Someone just introduced me to it last night, and it's pretty fun. The wikipedia page for it has links to a couple sites where you can download it (it's currently freeware): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_of_the_winds
While this game was made for 16bit versions of windows, it actually plays fine on XP without needing dosbox or any other VMs.


Anyway, it seems that in this game, stupidity really can be terminal:

Is 'stupider' really a word? :confused:

Yes, 'stupider' is a word, though 'more stupid' sounds better.

In any case, it fits in the context, because the game uses the word in the moment before Cypherswipe dies of low intelligence ;)

"The Heath Handbook" has a list of the preferred comparative and superlative forms of adjectives and adverbs. The handbook's rule of thumb is that, if a word is one syllable, use "er" and "est," as in "tall, taller, and tallest."

But . . . "Many adjectives of two syllables and all longer adjectives form the comparative and superlative by adding "more" and "most."

Examples: alert more alert most alert
ambitious more ambitious most ambitious
