JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Improving the Random Number Guessing Game

script.js

var correctGuess = false;
var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * 6 ) + 1;
var guess = prompt('I am thinking of a number between 1 and 6. What is it?');





if (parseInt(guess) === randomNumber ) {
  correctGuess = true;
} 




else if ( parseInt(guess) < randomNumber ) {
  var guessMore = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking of is more than ' + guess);
  if (parseInt(guessMore) === randomNumber) {
      correctGuess = true;
  }
} 



  else if ( parseInt(guess) > randomNumber ) {
   var guessLess = prompt('Try again. The number I am thinking of is less than ' + guess);
  if (parseInt(guessLess) === randomNumber) {
      correctGuess = true;
  }
}




if ( correctGuess ) {
    document.write('<p>You guessed the number!</p>');
} else {
    document.write('<p>Sorry. The number was ' + randomNumber + '.</p>');
}

Well Its so funny before I was able to write a loop, and now it doesn't even work.

Hi, there is no loop in this script, did you mean for it to loop until they got a correct guess? You'll probably want to use a while loop, and set it to keep looping until a correct guess.
