Tell us what’s happening: how do i create an if statement to set the to call isMonsterHit function

Your code so far


The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

function attack() {
  text.innerText = "The " + monsters[fighting].name + " attacks.";
  text.innerText += " You attack it with your " + weapons[currentWeapon].name + ".";
  health -= getMonsterAttackValue(monsters[fighting].level);

  monsterHealth -= weapons[currentWeapon].power + Math.floor(Math.random() * xp) + 1;
  healthText.innerText = health;
  monsterHealthText.innerText = monsterHealth; 
  if (isMonsterHit){isMonsterHealth();}
  if (health <= 0) {
  } else if (monsterHealth <= 0) {
    fighting === 2 ? winGame() : defeatMonster();

Hey @opeyemifrancis88,

Please do not make a second post for the exact same topic so that we can keep the forum clean. I deleted your previous post for you.

In the challenge rules, they want you to put that if statement below the line where health is subtracted. The condition of the if statement is meant to be what is returned from the function isMonsterHit so you will need to call that function in your if statement. And then think about what the purpose of that if statement is, and make a judgment call on what should go inside of the curly braces. It should be something that would be based on if the monster was hit such as the monster’s health.
