JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript (2015) Constructor Functions and Prototypes Adding a Prototype

??? object oriented challenge

We're adding a new method to every instance when a Monster is created. Use a prototype instead for the takeDamage method.

monster.js
function Monster(name) {
  this.name = name;
  this.health = 100;
}


  Monster.prototype.takeDamge = function (){
    this.health--;
  }

:point_right: You just have a typo. You need takeDamage instead of takeDamge.

oops !, thanks for the help

Mines is returning a parse erro

function Monster(name) {
  this.name = name;
  this.health = 100;
  }
}
  Monster.prototype.takeDamage = function(){
    this.health--;
}
