In this chapter, we’ll build a “Guess the Number” program. The computer will pick a random number between 1 and 20, and the user will have five attempts to guess the number. For every incorrect guess, the computer will let the user know if the correct answer is higher or lower than the user’s guess. If the user doesn’t guess the answer in five attempts, the program will tell the user what the number was.
To learn how to build a game like this, we cover the following topics in this chapter:
User’s view of the game
First loop in a real program
Increment and decrement
Running a program multiple times ...
