Doing a project on educational games for adolescents with autism

Hi all, I'm  investigating some  online games that might be potentially useful to teach nutrition to 6th to 7th graders diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (mild to moderate).

 

The ones I've found so far include:

http://www.nutritionexplorations.org/kids/activities/arianna.asp
http://www.nutritionexplorations.org/kids/activities/monster2.asp
http://www.mypyramid.gov/kids/kids_game.html
http://www.bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/index.html
http://pbskids.org/lunchlab/#/games/balance-bot
http://pbskids.org/lunchlab/#/games/supermarket-mania

 

 This one also looks very interesting but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to access it: It's the

Amazing Food Detective.

 

Has anyone come across any games they like (for adolescents in general? For ASD kids?).

 

Thanks for any info or thoughts! Continuing to research but would appreciate feedback. (Comparing games as part of a Masters class on educational technology).

BTW, the Amazing Food detective can be accessed in Internet Explorer. I was using Firefox. It actually looks like quite a good game.
