Master Mind Game

Master Mind Game

The Game of Master Mind is played as follows:
The computer has four slots containing balls that are red (R), yellow (Y), green (G) or blue (B). For example, the computer might have RGGB (e g , Slot #1 is red, Slots #2 and #3 are green, Slot #4 is blue) You, the user, are trying to guess the solution You might, for example, guess YRGB When you guess the correct color for the correct slot, you get a “hit” If you guess a color that exists but is in the wrong slot, you get a “pseudo-hit” for example, the guess YRGB has 2 hits and one pseudo hit For each guess, you are told the number of hits and pseudo-hits.
Write a method that, given a guess and a solution, returns the number of hits and pseudo hits.

  • If both guess and solution are not same length then throw exception.
  • Iterate both and find hits and create array of that guesses that are not hit.
  • Now iterate guesses again and count pseudo-hits.

Latest Source Code:


Solution: RGGB
Guess: YRGB
Result: Result {Hit: 2, Pseudo-hit: 1}
