When you say you looked in system/app and couldn't find it, do you mean you couldn't find the system/app folder, or that you couldn't find an APK file that looked like it was for either of those games? If you couldn't find the folder, then that's because whatever program you were using wasn't granted super-user permissions - rooting the phone doesn't automatically mean that all apps can act as the SU (thankfully!). If the app you were using didn't know how to get SU permissions, then it wouldn't be able to see the folder.
If Astro doesn't know how to get SU permissions (I stopped using that a while ago so I couldn't tell you), then EStrongs File Explorer might work but I think it depends on what ROM you're using. In the menu allowing you to get root permissions, it asks whether your ROM is based off "CyanogenMOD" or "HiAPK" - if your ROM isn't one of those, it might not work.
Another thing to try is looking through the folder via ADB. Use
to see what's installed. Remember you have to run "adb remount" before you can actually modify the system folder, otherwise the folder remains read-only.
