    If you look at the source of the website, you can look for files with .swf extensions. Load that file up in your favorite browser and save the "page".

    I don't know why someone would make a flash game of cartoon networks website, but I guess it's possible.

    While looking through the source used to work, nowadays sites use scripts to add elements so it's not so obvious.

    1. Install firefox.
    2. Install this addon. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/httpfox/
    3. Go to Tools - HttpFox - Open In Own Window
    4. Resize the window.
    5. Click the "start" button.
    6. Leave that window open, go to the page where you play the game (press CTRL+F5 if needed to reload the page).
    7. After the game has started playing, go to the HttpFox window.
    8. In the "type" column, look for something like "application/x-shockwave-flash".
    9. To the right of that should be a URL, right-click and copy it.
    10. Paste it into the address bar in a new tab or internet window and press enter, then go to File - Save As.
      (You may need to close the current window the game is playing in before it'll start sending it again.)

    This might not always produce usable games though, as not all games keep the resources in the file itself, some stream from servers both as a way to save bandwidth and loading time (only resources used are sent) and also to make copying it harder.

    Tried looking at the source, the swf files aren't shown in the source, so..if you use Chrome, there's an extension called Sothink Flash Downloader. I saved a few sample games. Works like a charm.

    And as Rydian said, some games may have dependencies stored on the server, so downloading the swf might not work.

    Most of the time, badges are just a browser-side script that just looks for certain memory values within the flash game. Once those values are "seen" by the script, it sends a signal to the server, and you achieve a badge on your account.

    Badges should have no affect on whether or not you can play the game saved in a local folder on your hard drive.

    Edit: Just tried out the game called Cheese quest. A game that has badges. Works just fine ran from a local folder, besides badges, which of course won't show up.

    I tried the Adventure Time games and it's a bit more complicated. You need to download the following files while retaining the directory structure. I only bothered testing the first game.

    Adventure Time: Righteous Quest
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Adventure Time: Righteous Quest 2
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You may need to edit your flash settings to get the games to run (otherwise black screen)
    1. Right-click any flash screen and go into 'Global Settings...'
    2. Go to the Advanced tab and click 'Trusted Location Settings...'
    3. Add the game folder to the list of exceptions.
