I'm playing this old text adventure game for the computer. It's a fantasy game based on magic and such. In the game there are hints on how to progress the game. I have solved a few, but these other ones are very challenging. It looks like the author changes the methodology for each puzzle. There was one that was reversed with an extra letter at the beginning of each word, there was a typical cryptogram, and there was one that was a phrase using jumbles, but had one of the letters missing.
I don't have much more than what I'm about to post. In the game you look at things like statues and pools of water and you'll see a puzzle. So far the room description has nothing to do with the puzzle.
Here's an example of one of the puzzles that I mostly solved.
HA-TC EN-ESA-EOP ORE-EF GUSI- XX-HE XXX-E-
CHANT .......... BEFORE USING THE KEY
If someone can find that missing word I'd be very happy. But here are the real ones that I can't even get my mind around:
1: ID- UPI- OZS-OMSY-PM -P P-YSOM Y-R FS--RT
2: FEOAMUT WOTAQUOP JAGAROONI PISTOBBA
3: D-TU U-F VO-OPX- TQF-M I-SF.
4: HQOFOWY ASITPQNM IFQNPYTUVC QOTMAY GIOEM LOOPAS ASIT, ILLIADA FALGORIA SIMAJF. UNALOOP LA HEARTOY.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
