Number guessing hello world games

A long time ago I thought I’d write a simple hello world application in every programming language I encountered over the years. As a simple hello world isn’t too interesting and doesn’t show anything regarding language capabilities, I decided to write simple number guessing games. It shows user input, simple output, generating a random number and basic logic.

While the list is far from complete, I ended up having a few small programs. Some of them are using the OOP capabilities of a language for no apparent reason. They were generally written quickly without much planning and in no way should they be considered well written or good programming practices. In particular, the Assembly version has some really embarassing parts…

There are some really old languages there, like C64 basic, QBasic and dBase IV.

If you want to have a look or would like to add your own, head over to my NumGuess project on GitHub.
