If you have found an internet game using Flash that you want to enjoy on the desktop without having to access the web, download it and play it with Swiff Player.
It uses a control clip in the lower part that allows you to navigate through the animation. The buttons included are play, stop and pause.
The status bar shows some details about the current video: mainly, the quantity of frames per second and the location on the timeline.
From the File menu, you can access the aforementioned option, although with more information: Flash version of the animation, size, duration, dimensions, etc.
