while True:

  print("Welcome to the dungeon!")
  print("You're currently in room {}".format(player))  # fill in with player position
  print("You can move {}".format(moves))  # fill in with available moves
  print("Enter QUIT to quit")

  move = input("> ")
  move = move.upper()

  if move == 'QUIT':

  if move in moves:
    player = move_player(player, move)
    print("That's a wall...")

  if player == door:
    print("You escaped!!!")
  elif player == monster:
    print("You made a tasty treat for the dungeon monster")

What's wrong with my code the editor is so frustrating.

syntax error on certain lines? i'm not sure if indented correctly. I'm used to curly braces with php and javascript.
