Number guessing game in Python

The Number guessing game is all about guessing the number randomly chosen by the computer in the given number of chances.

Function to be used:


In the program, while loop runs until the number guessed by the user is equal to the generated number or the number of attempts is less than the maximum number of chances. If the number of attempts becomes greater than the number of chances the game stops and the user loses the game. If the user guesses the correct number in the given number of chances then he or she will win. After every guess made by the user, the program informs the user whether the guessed number was smaller, greater than the actual generated number.
In this code, a random number is generated between 1-9 using the randint() function. The user is given a specific number of chances to guess the number if the chances exceed the user guesses the user would lose.

Below is the implementation.





# Number Guessing Game implementation  
# using Python 
import random
print("Number guessing game")
# randint function to generate the 
# random number b/w 1 to 9
number = random.randint(1, 9)
# number of chances to be given 
# to the user to guess the number 
# or it is the inputs given by user
# into input box here number of  
# chances are 5
chances = 0
print("Guess a number (between 1 and 9):"
# While loop to count the number
# of chances
while chances < 5:
    # Enter a number between 1 to 9 
    guess = int(input())
    # Compare the user entered number  
    # with the number to be guessed 
    if guess == number:
        # if number entered by user  
        # is same as the generated  
        # number by randint function then  
        # break from loop using loop 
        # control statement "break"
        print("Congratulation YOU WON!!!")
    # Check if the user entered  
    # number is smaller than  
    # the generated number 
    elif guess < number:
        print("Your guess was too low: Guess a number higher than", guess)
    # The user entered number is  
    # greater than the generated 
    # number             
        print("Your guess was too high: Guess a number lower than", guess)
    # Increase the value of chance by 1
    chances += 1
# Check whether the user  
# guessed the correct number 
if not chances < 5:
    print("YOU LOSE!!! The number is", number)





Number guessing game
Guess a number (between 0 and 10):
Your guess was too low: Guess a number higher than 1
Your guess was too low: Guess a number higher than 5
Your guess was too low: Guess a number higher than 7
Your guess was too high: Guess a number lower than 9
Congratulation YOU WON!!!

Note: In the above program, user can modify the value of randint() function to increase the range of numbers in this game and also user can increase the number of chances by increasing the value of the chance variable.
