A downloaded Javascript or Shockwave game is literally a whole
different game.  But then the browser is being used as the engine as
well as the user interface (in which case, one might just as well use
something like PyGame).  It seemed to me that the OP was talking about
a HTML-served image-map game with the browser serving as just the UI.
