If you are looking to Building a short game with ChatGPT or how to use ChatGPT to create an app then this guide will be extremely helpful. Statistics from Reuters showed that the  number of ChatGPT users skyrocketed from 100 million in January of 2023 to 180.5 million in just 8 months which is 80.5% increase. ChatGPT had 1.43 billion monthly visitors in August 2023. This growth will continue all through September to December. There are lost of people using ChatGpt all over the world. Is it possible to create a full stack app from scratch with ChatGPT? It's a yes and a no depending on what your intent is. If you want to create apps within chatgpt itself then no, but if you want to leverage ChatGpt to create mobile apps then yes.  In this guide, i built a full functional simple mobile app using ChatGpt AI, HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

What is the game where you Guess the word?

Word guessing games are a popular and entertaining way to engage users, test their vocabulary, and have a good time. It's the game where you have a number of slots to guess letters that make up a word. The New York Times have their own versions of theirs brain teasing game Called Wordle. In this tutorial, I  will guide you through creating your own word guessing game using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. But we won't stop there - we'll also integrate ChatGPT, a powerful AI developed by OpenAI, to enhance the user experience and bring an element of dynamism to the game.


Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
A code editor to write and test your code. is recommended for this Tutorial.

The core technologies used in web development to create websites and web apps are HTML (HyperText Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript. Since we are build a functional mobile app using HTML, CSS and JavaScript heres what you should atleast know.

What is HTML in Computing?

The standard markup language for creating the structure and content of web pages is HTML (HyperText Markup Language). Headings, paragraphs, photos, links, forms, and other elements and tags are used to define the various components of a webpage. For displaying material on the web, HTML offers the fundamental building elements.

What is Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)?

CSS is a stylistic language that regulates how HTML elements are displayed and organized on a webpage. It enables programmers to style HTML components with things like colors, fonts, margins, padding, and positioning. A website's design and aesthetic appeal can be improved with CSS, resulting in a more uniform and enjoyable user experience. It was first released on 17 December 1996; which is 26 years ago and updated in 2017.

What is JavaScript (JS)?

JavaScript is a strong, adaptable programming language that enables designers to create interactive, dynamic webpages. It makes it possible to use features like form validation, event handling (such as scrolling and clicking), DOM modification (which modifies the webpage's structure and layout), and AJAX (asynchronous data retrieval without refreshing the page). The development of responsive and feature-rich web apps requires the use of JavaScript. JScript was first released in 1996, alongside CSS and served as an extensions to HTML.

Now that I have briefly introduced you to HTML CSS and JavaScript it's time to start build the app. I called it "Guess the word"! To begin here are the steps I followes to build the guessing game App.

Step 1: Set Up the Project

First, let's set up the project. Create a new directory for your project and set up the basic HTML structure. Link the CSS and JavaScript files in the HTML file to ensure proper organization and structure for your game. You can use an online platform like code pen if you don't have a reliable pc software.

Step 2: Creating HTML Structure

Do some basic sketch and create an outline. Define the necessary HTML elements for the game, including input fields, buttons, and areas to display the word and keyboard. Structure the layout of the game in a way that is intuitive and user-friendly. In our case the guessing word game. Once you have established what features you should have, proceed to ChatGpt and ask it for the html.of your app. Below is the prompt is used to Generate the HTML for this app.

Response from ChatGpt after entering the prompt. It has created the basic html structure for the app we want to create this includes the meta data such as the view poin. The "<title>" tags for the title of the game and buttons that will be used by the user during interactive sessions.

Step 3: Adding CSS Styling

Css is simply used for styling of the application. Think of it as the graphics engine of the app. With css you can create any visuals you want your only limitation is your imagination. And yes, I mean literally. Apply CSS styles to give the game a visually appealing look. Choose colors, fonts, and positioning that resonate with the theme of the game. A well-styled game is more likely to capture the player's attention. For graphically demanding game you will need a lot of think and tinkering of the code generated by ChatGpt but will be fine for a basic app such as a to-do list app. For the "Guess the word" Game. I have ChatGpt the prompt below:

Effortless generation of the case to match the html previously generated. The response from ChatGpt was exactly what I needed. I changed mainly the color using hex codes and asked it to refine the code a few times to give the look you will behold in a bit! Let me know if you need the prompts in the comments:

Step 4: Initializing the Game

To better understand what goes on next, incase you are a newbie, JavaScript is what gives life to the app. All the functionality and animations that will be taking place will occur handled by JavaScript. Even though CSS can also be used it's recommended the use the right tools for the right job even if other tools could do same. Write JavaScript code to initialize the game variables and set up the game logic. This includes defining variables for the selected word, guessed letters, maximum attempts, current attempts, score, hint cost, level, and points required to advance to the next level. These are a few of what I came up with and you could add more to it.

Step 5: Generating Words

Implement logic to randomly select a word from a predefined list of words. This step is crucial in providing a challenging and varied experience for the player. For instance you can create multiple word list to contain multiple words but grouped in the same category. Even though this was not implemented, I hope you get the idea. This will be done automatically by ChatGpt when prompted but will need tinkering to give the best outcome. You should also consider brainstorming what functionalities could be implemented and ask ChatGpt if it were possible to implement them before generating the ovaral JavaScript code.

Step 6: Implementing the Game Logic

Ounce you are done with all that you want to see in the app and brainstormed the possibilities it's time to develop the game logic, including handling user input, checking guesses, updating the display, and managing the game flow. All this was down with ChatGPT with the prompt below. This step is the backbone of your game and makes it interactive and engaging.

As always ChatGpt wrote all the JavaScript code for the app. The response from ChatGpt was satisfactory and when I tested it, it worked flawlessly. I then implemented other functionalities such as scores and hits through tweaking. I also created a max point of 100 for level 1 and ended there for the tutorial but ended there. Multiple levels can be created with the same format in mind

Step 7: Enhancing with ChatGPT

You can even go as far Integrating ChatGPT to provide hints to the user, making the game more interactive and exciting.  This can be made possible bly using the ChatGpt API which you can sign up for here. This step takes your game to the next level by infusing dynamic and conversational elements.

Step 8: Optimizing and Test

Preview the results now if it's exactly what you aimed for otherwise optimize the game for performance and responsiveness. On a  large scale app production I recommend using html 5 for the games but be sure to conduct thorough testing to ensure the game functions as expected on different devices and screen sizes.
