"I can't see.. I can't see!" "wWhat's 'a matter?"

These games are Java applets which were intended to run from online web pages securely within all browsers.

To see them run could involve some workaround.

Features: Customizable layout- you can resize a game's window/ board as you like, change its look with basic color options and position it on your screen where you please for intermittent use while running other programs. Applets recall current input prompt on repaint()s, so you can minimize or alter the game and reopen it at the place where you left off, until you purposely reload the applet to start it over. Note that in output these freeware versions are technologically your basic self- contained secure Java applet (despite their contextual sophistication, eh) performing entirely within sandbox memory areas & writing nada to storage (you'll have to keep track of any advancement between games on paper - how retro!) so there's no way in the world hereabouts that loading & playing with this stuff can threaten your computer.
