In the solution area of part two,you need to add one more right command at the end ,cause codey wont reach the goal if you dont,

Actually, if I’m not wrong, in the solution the “move right” and “move up” commands should be inverted, and the function should be called 6 times instead of 5, or the trajectory will bring Codey away from the goal.

Thanks for the help. I was wondering why the solution codeacademy provided was not working.

you could actually define the function and recursively call the function like this.

Define Function A
Move Right
Move Up
Call Function A
End Function A

Call Function A

You only would then need to call the function once in the main loop then inside the function it calls itself to repeatedly Move Right then Up. Overall, it would save four blocks from intended way.
