Learn Basic JavaScript by Building a Role Playing Game - Step 147

Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

In your attack function, below the health variable, create an if statement. Set the condition to call the isMonsterHit function.

Kinda stuck here. Thanks in advance!

function attack() {
text.innerText = “The " + monsters[fighting].name + " attacks.”;
text.innerText += " You attack it with your " + weapons[currentWeapon].name + “.”;
health -= getMonsterAttackValue(monsters[fighting].level);
if () {
monsterHealth -= weapons[currentWeapon].power + Math.floor(Math.random() * xp) + 1;
healthText.innerText = health;
monsterHealthText.innerText = monsterHealth;
if (health <= 0) {
} else if (monsterHealth <= 0) {
if (fighting === 2) {
} else {

if it has to be the condition, it has to go between the round parenthesis just after the if

Like this?:

if (isMonsterHit){

tried it, but it doesn’t work unfortunately.

The error I get:
You should add an if statement which calls isMonsterHit in the condition.

you need to call isMonsterHit in the condition, you are missing ()

Thanks Ilenia for your help! I got it.
