If it doesn't need to access a server for tracking scores and such you should be able to just grab it from your browser's cache. Just look fot the .swf file and save it somewhere. If you don't have Macromedia Flash installed you will have to run it from within a browser.

If you're using windows, go to your Internet Options control panel and click the Settings... button in the General panel. In the Settings... panel that opens up, click on View Files, which will open up your browser cache.

Hope this helps

The game is probably built up of a few different swf files which are located in subdirectories. Unfortunately, once they're in your cache, they are all in the same folder, so the links are broken.

Lol, you're probably right. I might start doing that when I build a flash site!
