Learn Basic JavaScript by Building a Role Playing Game - Step 57

For some reason i can’t get past step 57 regarding the ‘‘button functions’’, even though I’ve checked the answer so it should be right. When I click ‘‘Check your code’’ it says:
''Sorry, your code does not pass. Try again.

SyntaxError: unknown: Unexpected token, expected “,” (28:0) 26 | 27 | // initialize buttons > 28 | button1.onclick = goStore; | ^ 29 | button2.onclick = goCave; 30 | button3.onclick = fightDragon; 31 |‘’

Anyone knows what I’m doing wrong?

This is what i’ve typed:

name: "town square",
"button text": ["Go to store", "Go to cave", "Fight dragon"],
"button functions": [goStore, goCave, fightDragon]

You appear to have created this post without editing the template. Please edit your post to Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

When you get an error like this which indicates a problem with the code after what you’re editing // initialize buttons > 28 it usually means you forgot some punctuation to end that section of code.

In this case, you never close the locations array
