Kongregate is a web game hosting and game forum website. With over 5 million forum posts and 1 million games, it remains to this day one of the most popular online game websites in the world.

How to download Kongregate Flash games

Follow this guide, but use this on Chrome instead.

Load the game's page, and there should be a SFW file somewhere in there. For example, Crazy Climber's file was at https://chat.kongregate.com/game_files/0000/0001/crazy-climber.swf.

NOTE: The Wayback Archive does NOT archive the Flash games when it archives the page they're located on, so don't rely on the Archive to save those at the moment.
