Description: Guess is similar to what number im thinking of game. Guess randoms a value between 1 to limit player has given and then player tries to guess wich number it is. Game gives hints is player guess higher or smaller than randomed value.

Original code was edited pretty hard way since it was pure GOTO jungle. Idea and source basic structure are still pretty near of original one. Player can now end game by giving value of 0 as limit.
