I am struggling with the player parameter and how to define it properly in order for this puzzle to function. When I put I use the suggestion, I get an error message.
I’m not quite sure I understand your question. The screenshot you shared looks like it should work, but I’m not sure if that is a screenshot of your code or something else and I’m also not sure I understand what error you are encountering.
Can you click on the share button and share a link to your code? If so, we can look at it and better help you to troubleshoot the error you are seeing.
Sure thing Mike. While I am working is there a way to test the program without the Circuit Playground?
Here is my code. When i click run, nothing happens.

Did you mean
setProperty(player, "y", player_y);
/* typeof player --> string typeof player_y --> number */ setProperty(player, "y", player);
yes, try the suggestion of @infinitestasis, It does appear to be a typo on your last line. Also, most of the time, you will need the Circuit Playground in order to test your code.
I found my error and corrected it.
As feedback, the player vs “player” piece was really tricky for me and my students
