Guess The Number!​

A simple game code to compete with your computer to guess the right random number!

Welcome to the code! This code is for you beginners who are keen to learn python programming and also have fun with python.

In this code, a random number will be guessed using the random module. The player has to guess the number and even the computer will be guessing the number in the backdrop. One who guesses the number with less number of steps is the winner!
