Where is the code checking whether the player is "pressing enter" to start?

clear_screen() print("Welcome to the dungeon!") input("Press return to start!") clear_screen() game_loop()

In Dungeon Game, where are we checking if the input is enter or something else?

Thank you!

No check is being done here.

Anything will satisfy the input and allow the game to begin. So the user could enter just a return, or type in a message and hit return (even a message like "QUIT!"), and the action would be the same.

If the input was important, more code could be added to save it, test it, and respond different ways based on what it was.
