Creating a simple word game

In this section, we will create a word guessing game with Unity, with the following features:

  • A word will be picked at random from an existing list.
  • The letters of the word will be hidden.
  • The players will try to guess each letter by pressing a letter on their keyboard.
  • Once a letter has been discovered it will then be displayed onscreen.
  • The player has a limited number of attempts to guess the word.

So, after completing this tutorial, you will be able to:

  • Read words from a text file.
  • Pick a random word.
  • Process and assess the letters pressed by the player.
  • Display the letters that were correctly guessed by the player.
  • Track and display the score.
  • Check when the player has used too many guesses.
