C++ || Random Number Guessing Game Using Srand, Rand, & Do/While Loop

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is a simple guessing game, which demonstrates the use of srand and rand to generate random numbers. This program first prompts the user to enter a number between 1 and 1000. Using if/else statements, the program will then check to see if the user inputted number is higher/lower than the pre defined random number which is generated by the program. If the user makes a wrong guess, the program will re prompt the user to enter in a new number, where they will have a chance to enter in a new guess. Once the user finally guesses the correct answer, using a do/while loop, the program will ask if they want to play again. If the user selects yes, the game will start over, and a new random number will be generated. If the user selects no, the game will end.

Once compiled, you should get this as your output:

I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 1000. Go ahead and make your first guess.

67
Too low! Think higher.
500
Too low! Think higher.
700
Too high! Think lower.
600
Too low! Think higher.
680
Too high! Think lower.
650
Too low! Think higher.
660
Too low! Think higher.
