Daily Challenge (208 Part Series)
Unfortunately, you have found yourself in a difficult situation. You have injured your leg and are unable to walk. A number
n of zombies are shuffling towards you, intent on eating your brains. Luckily, you've got your trusty rifle.
The zombies will start at a range of
r meters. They will move at 0.5m per second. Each second, you shoot one zombie, which depletes your ammo reserve
a by 1 each shot. The remaining zombies shamble forward. Since you're a good shot but also debilitated, there's a 5% chance you might miss.
If any of the zombies manage to reach 0 meters, you get eaten and lose. If you run out of ammo, you'll also get eaten. Ignore any time that would be spent reloading.
Write a function that accepts the total number of zombies
n, a range in meters
r, and the number of bullets you have
If you shoot all the zombies, return "You shot all X zombies." If you get eaten before killing all the zombies, and before running out of ammo, return "You shot X zombies before being eaten: overwhelmed." If you run out of ammo before shooting all the zombies, return "You shot X zombies before being eaten: ran out of ammo." (If you run out of ammo at the same time as the remaining zombies reach you, return "You shot X zombies before being eaten: overwhelmed.".)
zombie_shootout(3, 10, 10) => "You shot all 3 zombies."
zombie_shootout(100, 8, 200)
zombie_shootout(50, 10, 8)
Good luck! (I think you're going to need it.)
