Can you upload the function/script MemoryGame?

Hi Sarah,
I understand that you are facing the issue of counter not getting incremented in case 3 of the switch block.
The reason for such a behaviour is because of the 'break' statement you have placed after the following statement: 'fprintf('\n Excellent Memory Player!, Congrats for Finishing The Game!! \n')'
This 'break' statement takes the control out of entire while loop instead of just switch block, and hence the instructions after this 'break' are skipped and the value of count is not updated.
A workaround can be to place the statement 'count = count + M', after this statement:
'fprintf('\n Excellent Memory Player!, Congrats for Finishing The Game!! \n')'
Please refer the following documentation for further details:
" The MATLAB break statement ends execution of a for or while loop, but does not end execution of a switch statement. This behavior is different than the behavior of break and switch in C."
I hope it helps!
