Reverse Number guessing game
I call this a reverse number guessing game because usually the computer would generate a number for you to guess, but I want the computer to guess my number by guessing randomly in decreasing ranges depending on if I say too high or too low.
The biggest problem I'm having is making the range of the random number be correct. It likes to guess numbers out of the range.
The computer starts off by giving me a number from 1 - 100. Then i type in "th", "tl", or "co" (too high, too low, correct).
If I say too low the lowest number in the range should change to the previous guess and same for if i say too high (but it gets set to the previous highest number instead of previous lowest).
This should decrease the range of the random generator until it gets to the point where the range is so small that the computer can only guess my number or it might just get lucky before that (just like a human).
Here's the code:
public class computer_guess
public static void main(String args)
console = new Scanner(System.in);
Random aRandom = new Random();
prev_low = 1,
prev_high = 100,
guess = aRandom.nextInt(prev_high) + prev_low,
guesses = 0;
// long time = 0;
boolean win = false;
System.out.println("My guess is: " + guess);
feedback = console.nextLine();
if(feedback.equals("tl") || feedback.equals("th") || feedback.equals("co"))
prev_low = guess;
else if(feedback.equals("th"))//too high
prev_high = guess;
System.out.print("Yay, I WIN!");
win = true;
guess = aRandom.nextInt(prev_high) + prev_low;
//feedback = " ";
