Shockwave uses .swf files.

The game you're trying to download is a flash game.

Look at your browser cache's folder and you will probably find the .swf file(s) of the game(s) you were playing online. (to find the file(s) in the cache, first you must load the game(s) online).
Then open the .swf file with a browser which has the Shockwave plugin installed and you should be able to play the game offline.

If you can't find the .swf file(s), check your browser settings and be sure that it doesn't delete automatically the cache after you close the program.

It worked for me with a lot of games

Trust me its not an swf file. I have been downloading swf games for a long time and this is not an swf. The game uses shockwave player so it cant be a flash game, you cant run this game on flash player.

shockwave player uses .swf files, like flash player (search on google). have you searched for .swf files in your cache? have you tried to open them?
