Hello everyone, today we are going to build a Guess the Number Game in Python!

## How does it work? Our games will randomly generate a number between 0 and 30 and the player has to guess the number.

If the number entered by the player is less than generated number then the player will be prompted with `too low` message!

And if the number entered by the player is more than generated number then the player will be prompted with `too high` message!

This process will be repeated until the player finds the right number.

Pretty straightforward right... let's do it!

## Let's Code

Now since we are going to generate a random number and if you've been following past tutorials in the series than you might know what we are talking about here. We are going to import a module that comes pre-installed with our Python, it's called `random`.

Let's import it into our project.

``````import random
``````

Now we have to initialize a `max_num` variable. So that we can customize the difficulty as per our choice. Higher the value of `max_num`, the higher the difficulty. For now, let's keep it 30.

``````max_num = 30
``````

Now it's time we generate our random number which the player has to find.

For that we will be using `randint()` function from the `random` module. We will store this random value in `random_number` variable.

``````random_number = random.randint(1, max_num)
``````

It will generate a random number between `1` & `max_num`.

Then we will also initialize a `guess` variable to store the player's answer for comparison.

``````guess = 0
``````

Now let's create a while loop to keep asking the player until the right number is found. We will keep this loop running until our `random_number` & guess matches.

``````while guess != random_number:
pass
``````

Alright, so it's time we ask our player to make a guess enter a number to start the game.

``````while guess != random_number:
guess = int(input(f"Guess the number between 1 & {max_num}: "))
``````

We will also use `int()` function to covert the number from a string into an integer so that we can compare it to check the answer.

Now we will make use of `if` conditionals to compare the answer and provide suitable feedback to the player.

``````while guess != random_number:
guess = int(input(f"Guess the number between 1 & {max_num}: "))
if guess < random_number:
print("Wrong! Too low...")
elif guess > random_number:
print("Wrong! Too high...")
``````

Hopefully, the logic of the while loop will be clear as we already discussed it in How does it work? section.

Here are our `while` loop ends.

Now one last thing we have to do is to print a final message to the screen if the player got the right answer.

``````print(f"Thats Right! Random number is {random_number}")
``````

Let's summarize the logic one again:

• `max_num` variable will decide the difficulty of our game. Higher the value, the higher the difficulty.
• We will use `random.randint(1, max_num)` function to generate a random number.
• `guess` variable will contain the answer entered by the player.
• Now loop will begin and if the number entered by the player matches the generated answer then the loop will no longer execute and the final `print()` statement will be printed, telling the player that the game is over.
• Otherwise, the loop will keep running until the right number is entered by the player.
