Creating a random number game as a client/server game
Good evening everyone,
I have been tasked for a job interview as a junior developer to create a game with the following parameters:
Listen on a specific port
Allow multiple clients to connect at once
Application client, which is responsible for connecting to server, interpreting the commands, and sending commands to the server
Client will ask user for lower number and higher number of the guessing game
Client will then ask user for their guess
Client will tell the user if their guess is too high, too low, or correct.
Once they guess the correct number, the client will then tell the user the number of trieds they took to find that number
The game then starts over.
*Side: I also want to add an option to close the game at anytime
I am not looking for someone to tell me the EXACT approach to this. I am new to the coding world (I dove into C++ and Visual Basic about 9 years ago in high school; haven't touched it since), and have become intrigued at the fundamentals behind it. What I am looking for is some reference materials that might show examples of how this would be accomplished.
Does anyone know of a website or published materials that would help me on this adventure?
