Is it a character-substitution code?

I'm thinking that an anagram is when you rearrange the letters to spell out different words.

Example: post, spot, tops, stop, opts.

And of course: SO DARK THE CON OF MAN

However, from the examples given, this is a character substitution game, not a scrambling game.

Turns out 2 and 6 weren't right worded.
2. qb hchudqby bhlhe averhyl (Hint: Y = T)
6. t wqffqk byg xcq ujxygp xy pxugx xcq pjqoq ubxqg xcqw cuk ufgqukw kyoq py. ktk t empx cuaq u piyoxuoqymp gq-ujxtyo? (Hint: U = A)
Bleh!

We need a program that will display the sentence with letter substitutions as you try them out and display an alphabet with the unused letters noted.

In #6, if U=A then T=I. K=D.

Has enough time passed that you could post the solution?

You could always preface the note with a big, red Spoiler Warning. Grin

I spoke with the author of the game. I got the answers alien
Those were really hard...


SPOILERS



1. The year two thousand and six
2. An elephant never forgets
3. What light through yonder window breaks?
4. Welcome to the Hotel California
5. Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!

6. I yelled for the actors to start the scene after they had already done so. Did I just have a spontaneous re-action?
7. There is no type of person on Earth more infuriating than a religious zealot.
8. In order to become famous, die an ironic death. This may sound silly, but it worked for the Curies.
9. What will happen will happen. There will be time for miracles until there is no more time, but time has no end.
10. If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.


All right, there was no need for the spoilers sign. I just wanted to do it. I wish I would have thought of the tiny size before.

Is it the same substitution code for all of them, or are they all different?

They're usually all different.
