Early Returns - How my code is going so far

A bit different cause I am doing it more to my personal taste, but is working well and quite similarly.

// Fill out your copyright notice in the Description page of Project Settings.
#include "BullCowCartridge.h"

void UBullCowCartridge::BeginPlay() // When the game starts
{
    Super::BeginPlay();
    SetupGame();
}

void UBullCowCartridge::OnInput(const FString& Input) // When the player hits enter
{
  ClearScreen();
  ProcessGuess(Input);
}

void UBullCowCartridge::SetupGame()
{
  HiddenWord = TEXT("melon");
  Lives = HiddenWord.Len();
  bGameOver = false;

  PrintLine(TEXT("Welcome to Bulls and Cows game!"));
  PrintLine(TEXT("Try and guess the %i letter isogram"), HiddenWord.Len());
  PrintLine(TEXT("You got %i lives"), Lives);
}

void UBullCowCartridge::EndGame(bool bIsWon)
{
  bGameOver = true;
  switch (bIsWon)
  {
  case true:
    PrintLine(TEXT("Congratulations, you have won the game!"));
    PrintLine(TEXT("hit Enter to start a new one..."));
    break;
  case false:
    PrintLine(TEXT("You ran out of lives."));
    PrintLine(TEXT("hit Enter to start a new game..."));
    break;
  }
}

void UBullCowCartridge::CheckLives()
{
  if (Lives <= 0)
  {
    EndGame(false);
  }
  else
  {
    PrintLine(TEXT("You got %i lives left..."), Lives);
    PrintLine(TEXT("Try another guess"));
  }
}

void UBullCowCartridge::ProcessGuess(FString Guess)
{
  if (bGameOver)
  {
    SetupGame();
    return;
  }

  if (Guess == HiddenWord)
  {
    EndGame(true);
    return;
  }
  else
  {
    --Lives;
  }

  if (Guess.Len() != HiddenWord.Len())
  {
    PrintLine(TEXT("The hidden word has %i characters!"), HiddenWord.Len());
    PrintLine(TEXT("Your guess had %i."), Guess.Len());
    CheckLives();
    return; 
  }
  else
  {
    PrintLine(TEXT("Wrong answer!"));
    CheckLives();
    return;
  }
}

That’s my thought

Woah nice. I like what you did with this bool parameter. I had thought a bool would help there but wasn’t sure how to approach it. It’s quite elegant
