LPTHW - ex43 - scenes not being properly picked up

When I run ex43’s code in powershell, I’ve noticed that randomly scenes are not being properly picked up at the end of the if statements (next to return). Sometimes everything will work ok and the next scene will be trigered. But sometimes, even if I type in the correct input (I’ve added some cheat codes for the hardest rooms), the current scene will repeat itself, and the next scene won’t be triggered.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I can’t figure out why that is going on.

Thanks for your help!

Here is the code:

from sys import exit
from random import randint
from textwrap import dedent # output formatting

class Scene(object): #  this one is the base class

    def enter(self):
        print("This scene is not yet configured. ")
        print("Subclass it and implement enter(). ")

class Engine(object): # uses the methods for Map.opening_scene and Map.next_scene

    def __init__ (self, scene_map):
        self.scene_map = scene_map

    def play(self):
        current_scene = self.scene_map.opening_scene()
        last_scene = self.scene_map.next_scene('finished')
        print("current scene before while: ", current_scene)

        while current_scene != last_scene:
            print(f">>>>> TOP OF WHILE: current scene: {current_scene} last scene: {last_scene}")
            next_scene_name = current_scene.enter()
            print(">>> SCENE", next_scene_name)
            current_scene = self.scene_map.next_scene(next_scene_name)

            print("BOTTOM OF WHILE: current scene: ", current_scene, "last scene: ", last_scene)
            #be sure to print out the last scene

class Death(Scene):

    quips = [
    "You died.  You kinda suck at this.",
    "Your Mom would be proud... if she were smarter.",
    "Such a luser.",
    "I have a small puppy that's better at this.",
    "You're worse than your Dad's jokes."


    def enter(self):
        print(Death.quips[randint(0, len(self.quips)-1)]) # if this scene is triggered a random item from the quips list will be printed

class CentralCorridor(Scene):

    def enter(self):
             The Gothons of Planet Percal #25 have invaded  your ship and
             destroyed your entire crew. You are the last surviving
             member and your last mission is to get the neutron destruct
             bomb from the Weapons Armory, put it in the bridge, and
             blow the ship up after getting into an escape pod.

             You're running down the central corridor to the Weapons
             Armory when a Gothon jumps out, red scaly skin, dark grimy
             teeth, and evil clown costume flowing around his hate
             filled body. He's blocking the door to the Armory and
             about to pull a weapon to blast you.

        action = input("> ")

        if action == "shoot!":
                 Quick on the draw you yank out your blaster and fire
                 it at the Gothon. His clown costume is flowing and
                 moving around his body, which thorws off your aim.
                 Your laser hits his costume but misses him entirely.
                 This completely ruins his brand new costume his mother
                 bought him, which makes him fly into an insane rage
                 and blast you repeatedly in the face until you are
                 dead. Then he eats you.
            return 'death'

        elif action == "dodge!":
                 Like a world class boxer you dodge, weave, slip and
                 slide right as the Gothon's blaster cranks a laser
                 past your heard. In the middle of your artful dodge
                 your foot slips and you bang your head on the metal
                 wall and pass out. You wake up shortly after only to
                 die as the Gothon stomps on your head and eats you.
            return 'death'

        elif action == "tell a joke":
                 Lucky for you they made you learn Gothon insults in
                 the academy. You tell one Gothon joke you know:
                 Aaknidnqq ijij jnds oio ujnuj. The Gothon stops, tries
                 not to laugh, the busts out laughing and can't move.
                 While he's laughing you run up and shoot him square in
                 the head putting him down, then jump through the
                 Weapon Armour door.
            return 'laser_weapon_armory'

            return 'central_corridor'

class LaserWeaponArmory(Scene):

    def enter(self):
            You do a dive roll into the Weapon Armory, crouch and scan
            the room for more Gothons that might be hiding. It's dead
            quiet, too quiet. You stand up and run to the far side
            the room and find the neutron bomb in its container.
            There's a keypad lock on the box and you need the code to
            get the bomb out. If you get the code wrong 10 times then
            the lock closes forever and you can't get the bomb.  The
            code is 3 digits.

        code = f"{randint(1,9)}{randint(1,9)}{randint(1,9)}"
        print(">>> this is the code:", code)
        guess = input("[keypad]> ")
        guesses = 0

        while guess != code and guesses < 10:
            guesses += 1
            print(">> Try number: " , guesses)
            guess = input("[keypad]> ")

        if guess == code:
                The container clicks open and the seal breaks, letting
                gas out. You grab the neutron bomb and run as fast as
                you can to the bridge where you must place it in the
                right spot.
            return 'the_bridge'
                The lock buzzes one last time and then you hear a
                sickening melting sound as the mechanism is fused
                together. You decide to sit there, and finally the
                Gothons blow up the ship from their ship and you die.
            return 'death'

class TheBridge(Scene):

        def enter(self):
                You burst onto the Brisge with the netron destuct bomb
                under your arm and surprise 5 Gothons who are trying to
                take control of the ship. Each of them has an even uglier
                clown costume than the last. They haven't pulled thier
                weapons out yet, as tey see the active bomb under your
                arm and don't want to set it off.

            action = input("> ")

            if action == "throw the bomb":
                    In a panic you throw the bomb at the group of Gothons
                    and make a leap fo the door. Right as you drop it a
                    Gothon shoots you right in the back killing you. As
                    you die you see another Gothon frantically try to
                    disarm the bomb. You die knowing they will probably
                    blow up when it goes off.
                return 'death'

            elif action == "slowly place the bomb":
                    You point your blaster at the bomb under your arm and
                    the Gothons put their hands up and start to sweat.
                    You inch backward to the door, open it, and then
                    carefully place the bomb on the floor, pointing your
                    blaster at it. You then jump back though the door,
                    punch the close button and balst the lock so the
                    Gothons can't get out. Now that the bomb is placed
                    you run to escape pod to get off this tin can.
                return 'escape_pod'

                You rush through the ship desperately tyinh yo make it to
                the escape pod before the whole ship explodes. It seems
                like hardly Gothons are on the ship, so your run is
                clear of interference.  You get to the chamber with the
                escape pods, and now need to pick one to take.  Some of
                them could be damaged but you don't have time to look.
                There's 5 pods, which one do you take?

            good_pod = randint(1,5)

            if int(guess) != good_pod:
                    You jump into pod {guess} and hit the eject button.
                    The pod escapes out into the voif of space, then
                    implodes as the hull ruptures, crushing your body into
                    jam jelly.
                return 'death'
                        You jump into pod {guess} and hit the eject button.
                        The pod easily slides out into space heading to the
                        planet below.  As it flies to the planet, you look
                        back and see your ship implode then explode like a
                        bight star, taking out the Gothon ship at the same
                        time. You won!
