Inspired from this blog post and basic-computer-games.

This game is an adaptation of the game GUESS; however, instead of just guessing a number between 1 and 100, in this game you win dollars when you guess the number. The directions, in the words of the author, are as follows:

``````package main
import (
"fmt"
"math/rand"
"strings"
"time"
)
const (
MAX_ATTEMPTS = 6
MIN = 1
MAX = 100
)
func welcome() {
fmt.Println("HI LO")
fmt.Printf("CREATIVE COMPUTING MORRISTOWN, NEW JERSEY\n\n\n")
fmt.Printf("THIS IS THE GAME OF HI LO.\n")
fmt.Printf("YOU WILL HAVE %d TRIES TO GUESS THE AMOUNT OF MONEY IN THE\n", MAX_ATTEMPTS)
fmt.Printf("HI LO JACKPOT, WHICH IS BETWEEN %d AND %d DOLLARS. IF YOU\n", MIN, MAX)
fmt.Println("GUESS THE AMOUNT, YOU WIN ALL THE MONEY IN THE JACKPOT!")
fmt.Println("THEN YOU GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO WIN MORE MONEY. HOWEVER,")
fmt.Printf("IF YOU DO NOT GUESS THE AMOUNT, THE GAME ENDS.\n\n\n")
}

func play() {
total_winnings := 0
for {
secret := randomNumber()
guessed_correctly := false
for i := 1; i <= MAX_ATTEMPTS; i++ {
var in int
_, err := fmt.Scanf("%d", &in)
if err != nil {
panic(err)
}
if in == secret {
fmt.Printf("GOT IT!!!!!!!!!! YOU WIN %d DOLLARS\n", secret)
guessed_correctly = true
break
} else if in > secret {
} else if in < secret {
}
}
if guessed_correctly {
total_winnings += secret
fmt.Printf("YOUR TOTAL WINNINGS ARE NOW %d DOLLARS\n", total_winnings)
} else {
fmt.Printf("YOU BLEW IT...TOO BAD...THE NUMBER WAS %d\n", secret)
}
fmt.Printf("\n")
fmt.Printf("PLAY AGAIN (YES OR NO)?: ")
if err != nil {
panic(err)
}
fmt.Printf("\nSO LONG. HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOURSELF!!!\n")
break
} else {
}
}
}

func randomNumber() int {
rand.Seed(time.Now().UnixNano())
return rand.Intn(MAX-MIN+1) + MIN
}

func main() {
welcome()
play()
}
