Can the following code be simplified/ improved? (NOTE: I am yet to learn OOP/ def functions). I have not used OOP and def functions on purpose, as I am yet to learn this aspect of Python. I have listed some things I would like to improve on below.
- Could/ Should I implement for loops?
- Is the structure of the code of a good standard?
- How can I simplify the code (using less loops/ less code in general)?
# Python 3.4.3 // MacOS (Latest) import random WORD = ('apple', 'oracle', 'amazon', 'microsoft') word = random.choice(WORD) correct = word clue = word + word[(len(word)-1):(len(word))] letter_guess = '' word_guess = '' store_letter = '' count = 0 limit = 5 print('Welcome to "Guess the Word Game!"') print('You have 5 attempts at guessing letters in a word') print('Let\'s begin!') print('\n') while count < limit: letter_guess = input('Guess a letter: ') if letter_guess in word: print('yes!') store_letter += letter_guess count += 1 if letter_guess not in word: print('no!') count += 1 if count == 2: print('\n') clue_request = input('Would you like a clue?') if clue_request == 'y': print('\n') print('CLUE: The first and last letter of the word is: ', clue) if clue_request == 'n': print('You\'re very brave!') print('\n') print('Now its time to guess. You have guessed',len(store_letter),'letters correctly.') print('These letters are: ', store_letter) word_guess = input('Guess the whole word: ') while word_guess: if word_guess.lower() == correct: print('Congrats!') break elif word_guess.lower() != correct: print('Unlucky! The answer was,', word) break print('\n') input('Press Enter to leave the program')
