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 (
2.  Born into Darkness (
3.  Westward 4: All Aboard (
4.  Trapped, The Abduction (
5.  Virtual Families (
6.  Aztec Tribe (
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
( -- Crashes when
starting a game.
2.  Mishap: An Accidental Haunting
( -- Does not
show anything on the screen.
