Understanding the Code of the Secret Word Guessing Game

The Secret Word Guessing Game is more than just an entertaining challenge; it's a showcase of fundamental JavaScript functionalities. Let's dissect the key components of the code:

HTML Structure

The HTML sets the stage for our game. It includes:

<!-- Clue and Start Button -->

<h2 id="clue">...</h2>

<button id="startButton">Start Game</button>

<!-- Game Area (Initially Hidden) -->

<div id="gameArea">

 <input type="text" id="userGuess" ...>

 <button id="submitGuess">Submit Guess</button>

 <p id="attemptsInfo"></p>


<p id="resultMessage"></p>

JavaScript Logic

The JavaScript file game.js is where the magic happens. It includes:

// Game Initialization

document.getElementById('startButton').addEventListener('click', function() {

 // Game setup code...


// Guess Submission Handling

document.getElementById('submitGuess').addEventListener('click', function() {

 // Game logic code...
