I have the basis of the program, but I need to add more parameters like <=3 but instead >3 and <=7 and another that is just >7. How do I add this into my existing code? And my last question is how can I add in the choice for difficulty? Like if I type in 1 when prompted it will set the game parameters to 1-100 and if I type 2 it makes it 1-1000 and so forth?

You could do something like this ...

``````# Guess the number game by Johnathan Millsap

import random

myName = input('Hello! What is your name? ')
level = int(input('Pick a level of difficulty (1 to 3): '))
# change range and number of allowed guesses with level
if …``````

Well, I know c++ more than python. But since no one has replied yet I'll take a shot at this.
There are several ways to go about adding difficulty, I would do something like having a menu in the beginning asking for the difficulty, say 1-3, 1 is easy and so on. Then having the variable that stores the difficulty level trigger then range of numbers.

ex(psuedolanguage):

`````` 'difficulty?'
//user input = 2
if input == 1
"max = 100"
if input == 2
"max = 1000"
ect..
number = random.randint(1, max)
print('Well, ' + myName + ', I am thinking of a number between 1 and '+max+'.')
print('Try to guess it!.')

Anymore questions feel free to ask here or PM me :3
Maybe I can help :D
