Searching flash games using Google Search trick

Another google trick, this can be used to search any flash games(swf files) you want to play.

So you just played a flash game which was really cool and you want to download it in your computer? You can use google's search trick to search for any flash game you want.
This trick relies on the way directory listing is done in the webserver's directories. Whenever the default index page or directory listing denying features are not implemented in the web server, we can view the files in the directory. I'm not going into the further detail of this, instead I'm going to show you how to perform the google search for finding whatever flash game you want.

I need the game called gravity which is very fun to play. Now I do the search as below to find it:

"index of /" "last modified" "parent directory" swf gravity

You can replace the gravity with the name of the flash game you want to search and download.

Have fun with this google trick. :)
