Note that not all of the casual games are available online, and the
ones that are have cut-down gameplay/graphics/missing voice
I know that the following work well:
1. Virtual City (http://www.awem.com/virtual-city.html)
2. Born into Darkness (http://www.awem.com/born-into-darkness.html)
3. Westward 4: All Aboard (http://www.awem.com/westward-iv-all-aboard.html)
4. Trapped, The Abduction (http://www.awem.com/trapped-the-abduction.html)
5. Virtual Families (http://www.awem.com/virtual-families.html)
6. Aztec Tribe (http://www.awem.com/aztec-tribe.html)
7. My Kingdom For The Princess
8. Autumns Treasures: The Jade Coin
My Kingdom for the Princess is the only one of these that I am aware
of that has a cut-down online version available.
I know that the following don't work yet:
1. Architect: Episode 1
(http://www.awem.com/architect-episode-1.html) -- Crashes when
starting a game.
2. Mishap: An Accidental Haunting
(http://www.awem.com/mishap-an-accidental-haunting.html) -- Does not
show anything on the screen.
