Create your own Game using ChatGPT 4o in less than 5 Minutes!

Every time Open AI ends up releasing a new update to its artificial intelligence powerhouse, there’s a ripple felt all around. And this time around, the intensity of this wave has reached an all-time high, thanks to it receiving its biggest update to date. The latest offering from Sam Altman has now made it possible for the AI to understand and respond with speech without first having to transcribe the text.

As a result of this, it already makes it faster and much more efficient than its predecessor. Apart from that, it now gives you the option to upload more file types, including the long-requested audio and video files. However, I was looking to take the road less traveled and try out something intriguing, instead of having the same old conversations that the rest of the users would already be engaged in with this AI.

Breakout Game created via ChatGPT!

Guess what? I managed to create a game, entirely via ChatGPT 4o and the entire process took less than 5 minutes- right from the first line of code to the entire game running on my PC! So without further ado, let me show you how all of this could be carried out.

How to Create Your Own Game Using ChatGPT 4o in 5 Minutes!

Taking a stroll down the memory lane, we picked up the Breakout game from the basket of nostalgia and asked ChatGPT to write a code for it in Python. GPT only took around 15 seconds to provide us with the entire code. While the game did run efficiently, however, as soon as the game was over, the window closed all of a sudden. If a user had to play it again, then they would have to again launch the game. This proved to be quite an effort-taking task.

So I asked it to modify the code and add the option to restart the game as soon as it gets over. When that was done, I also realized that displaying the current score at the end of the game would also be a nifty addition. So I again asked the AI to get this job done and it provided me with another modified code.

And that’s just about it. You could play Breakout, view your score as soon as the game is over, and even restart it right from within the game window itself. Quite impressed, huh? So what are you waiting for, it’s now time to jump onto this bandwagon right away!
