The key difference is using C-language for different applications. Mainly C-language is used in making computer applications and with ability of C-language to have direct memory access of any microprocessor or microcontroller unlike JAVA language makes it very useful in using Embedded applications. 

So for developing firmware or software or applications for microntrollers, we use Embedded-C and for developing Computer application we use C-language. 

The game industry is still using C/C++ native languages becoz the native language can have direct memory access of microprocessor which makes game application faster unlike JAVA.

So in short, embedded c and c are same in all the ways except the functions made for especially accessing the different parts of microcontroller such as GPIO, Registers, Timers, etc.
