I had a few ideas to add to this game. One was adding a second board to store information useful to the player such as:
- words they already guessed
- how many bulls/cows each word had
- letters the player knows are incorrect (like if you guess the word ‘phone’ and get zero bulls/cows then you know those letters are all wrong and shouldn’t bother using them again.)
This would help keep the primary board tidy, improve the player experience (mine at least), and teach me how to print messages to the player from scratch. I tried to find a way to print messages to the screen on google but my search wasn’t successful. The only thing I managed to get working was debug messages, which didn’t work the way I expected.
Any help is appreciated,
