I would like to play Super Mario 63 on my work laptop, but not in a browser. I have only found the game embedded on a site. How can I download it?

What is Super Mario 63? Edit: Found it: newgrounds.com/portal/view/498969 (Flash game on New Grounds). So is the question then, "How can I play flash games on a machine I'm not allowed to install flash?" –  Raven Dreamer Feb 22 '11 at 3:11
    
No idea, but @Prashant apparently means 63 and not 64 (which is why I rolled back your edit @Andy). Edit: Oh, perhaps a new question should be asked with that title, as the answers are completely irrelevant to it @Raven –  Kevin Y Feb 22 '11 at 3:13
    
What OS is the computer in question? –  CyberSkull Nov 22 '11 at 0:32

To generalize: there are flash games you are allowed to download and distribute and there are flash games which are not allowed to download and distribute,

Companies that allow you to make a login and download flash games to play them locally and/or copy them to your own site (i have downloaded about 45.000 flash games) among others:

If you want to have a lot of options around this like auto downloading etc..., then install XAMP, WordPress and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/myarcadeblog/ and you can run this semi automatically in other words: it acts as a GUI for all of this. Notice that XAMP installs a local webserver that enables you to play the games on your localhost.

thank you sir for all the help!!! –  PRASHANT P Feb 23 '11 at 5:22

You need to have the Flash Player Projector for your platform. Depending on the installer, there might not be a way to get around installing, especially on Windows. Mac OS X installer packages can be manually extracted, so no big deal there. Windows installers are trickier and often do registry updates (the big deal breaker).

If the machine in question is a Windows machine, try installing the Flash Projector on a Windows computer you admin and then copy the Projector application to the other computer and see if that works.

It is not possible to run flash games without installing flash.

You can fish around the page's data to find the exact file the .swf is, and download it (most popular browsers have this feature). Then, opening the local file in your browser will let you play it offline. I don't know where this stands on the piracy scale, though. –  Kevin Y Feb 22 '11 at 3:27

I think this question is the victim of overzealous editing, as I now have no idea what was originally intended to be asked. –  Raven Dreamer Feb 22 '11 at 3:30
    
Seeing as downloading the swf and running it locally breaks the ads, I think you can safely call that piracy. –  user56 Feb 22 '11 at 10:52
