Kijjaa: a webapp remotely controlled by an iPhone

When you buy the iOS game Kijjaa, you are actually buying the remote control. The real game is Flash-based and started via a web browser, usually on a desktop or notebook computer with a large screen. I like the idea. Clearly, they are managing everything via their web server and this makes sense, because it is convenient and allows them to easily upgrade the game. I can also imagine the iPhone itself serving this kind of game (mirroring some of the ideas in my post on cloud computing).
