Map wont register DOWN movement

OK I have followed Kenneths instructions to the letter but my map wont register a down movement (and it seems an up movement wont register either).

I cant screenshot all the code and am not using workspaces to do the code either so im gonna throw it up the unliked way:

```import random

CELLS = [(0, 0), (0, 1), (0, 2),
(1, 0), (1, 1), (1, 2),
(2, 0), (2, 1), (2, 2)]

def get_locations():
monster = random.choice(CELLS)
door = random.choice(CELLS)
start = random.choice(CELLS)

if monster == door or monster == start or door == start:
return get_locations()

return monster, door, start

def move_player(player, move):
# player = (x, y)
x, y = player

if move == 'LEFT':
y -= 1
elif move == 'RIGHT':
y += 1
elif move == 'UP':
x -= 1
elif move == ' DOWN':
x += 1

return x, y

def get_moves(player):
moves = ['LEFT', 'RIGHT', 'UP', 'DOWN']
# player = (x, y)

if player[1] == 0:
moves.remove('LEFT')
if player[1] == 2:
moves.remove('RIGHT')
if player[0] == 0:
moves.remove('UP')
if player[0] == 2:
moves.remove('DOWN')

return moves

def draw_map(player):
print(' _ _ _')
tile = '|{}'

for idx, cell in enumerate(CELLS):
if idx in [0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 7]:
if cell == player:
print(tile.format('X'), end='')
else:
print(tile.format('_'), end='')
else:
if cell == player:
print(tile.format('X|'))
else:
print(tile.format('_|'))

monster, door, player = get_locations()
print("Welcome to the dungeon!")

while True:
moves = get_moves(player)

print("You're currently in room {}".format(player))

draw_map(player)

print("You can move {}".format(moves))
print("Enter QUIT to quit")

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

if move == 'QUIT':
break

if move in moves:
player = move_player(player, move)
else:
print("** Walls are hard, stop walking into them! **")
continue

if player == door:
print("You escaped!")
break
elif player == monster:
print("You were eaten by the grue")
break

# if it a good move, change the players position
# if it is a bad move, dont change the position
# if the new player position is the door they win
# if the new player position is the monster they lose
# otherwise continue
```

sorry for the shoddy upload on the code side

It's okay, I went ahead and fixed it for you. Be sure to check out the markdown cheatsheet when posting on how to properly format code.

Hey Daire,

Your code looks good, but you have one single typo that's breaking your down movement.

```    if move == 'LEFT':
y -= 1
elif move == 'RIGHT':
y += 1
elif move == 'UP':
x -= 1
elif move == ' DOWN':
x += 1
```

`elif move == ' DOWN':` this line is looking for a space before DOWN, instead of just DOWN. If you remove that space, it should work as intended.

Hope that helps!

perfect thanks dude works like a charm now
