    Default Hard time understanding.

    Hey everyone I just signed up here and I am pretty new when it comes to programing, I also hope I am posting this in the right forum, but ill get to the point. My teacher this semester sent me this assignment.

    This game program is intended to help you practice, implement and enjoy the coding syntax that you have learned to date. The objective of the game, simply stated, is to Break the Code in the minimum number of guesses.
    Game Design
    This is a 2 player game where Player 1 “Maker” is created a code, and Player 2 is the “Breaker”. Play alternates between Player 1 and Player 2 alternating responsibility to “Make or Break” the Code. Any number of iterations of the game make a match, where the lowest total score (least number of attempts to guess the code) Wins.
    Game Setup
    During each game there is the following requirements to be established:
    Skill Level : Easy, Moderate, or Difficult
    Guess time out: 2 sec, 5 sec, 10 sec
    Encryption Key: 1,2 or 3 offset.
    Hints: On or Off
    Graphics Presented for margin of victory, Low, Moderate, High

    I have emailed my teacher, but he has not responded so I came here for a helping hand. I am not asking for a solution just maybe a better translation of what he is asking me to do.

    Default Re: Hard time understanding.

    It looks like a wrapper for a game. The game itself is not defined. The program will call methods in a game and set controls for the game. For testing you could write a shell for the game.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
