ID an early 2000s game?

My friend is trying to find this game, as yet with no luck.

He describes it thus:

Anyone familiar with the game?

No one?

There were so many little java applets running around at that time–most of which were aptly referred to as “crapplets”-- that it’s not going to be easy to find someone who remembers a specific one like that without more to go on.

It actually sounds vaguely familiar to me, but I wouldn’t be able to tell you what it was called in a million years.

Same here. There were so many of them with fairly unimaginative names and even more unimaginative gameplay that they all kind of blended together.

Sounds kinda similar to, but that’s pretty recent.
