def move

now I know I stole a bit of kenneth coding but im just looking for a tip that could point me in the right direction to fixing this code

movement.py
# EXAMPLES:
# move((1, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 10)
# move((0, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 5)
# move((0, 9, 5), (0, 1)) => (0, 9, 0)

  def move(player,direction):
   direction = ["Left", "Right", "Up", "Down"]
   x, y, hp = player
   if x == 0:
       direction.remove("Left")
   elif x == 0-1:
       hp -= 5
   if x == 9:
       direction.remove("Right")
   elif x == 9+1:
       hp -= 5
   if y == 0:
       direction.remove("Up")
   elif y == 0-1:
       hp -= 5
   if y == 9:
       direction.remove("Down")
   elif y == 9+1:
       hp -= 5
   return x, y, hp

It looks like you've mixed two different functions together here — one that would show what the available directions are, and another that would perform the selected move.

For this challenge, you're only doing the second one, so you won't need a list of strings to represent the move directions, or any code to alter or display those strings.

So concentrate on implementing the requested direction or increasing the "hp" when the move is not valid.
