Hi @sherry.wood,

Fun game!

The first thing I noticed was you have else statements and if they are triggered, caused the velocityX to be 0. So, I put a console.log in each else statement and saw that one or the other of the else statements is constantly running causing velocity on the x axis to always be 0.

How can you set the default x velocity to 0 without the else statements (hint - look at the top of your draw loop)?

Hope that helps!
