I think, after the end of the first inner while loop, which starts like this:
while(riddlescheck==true && riddlecounter1<4)
you need this:
if ~riddles
break
end
This will break out of the outer while loop and end the game if the user has gotten the first riddle wrong three times. (Note that you don't need a similar check after the second inner while loop because the outer while loop takes care of it.)
