Generally speaking, you don't download programs from outside 
KPackagekit, You search in the search bar for available packages. So, if 
you search for kdegames, you will find that package, select it , and 
install it. It will download everything you need and install it for you. 
This particular package will install all the KDE based games, and if you 
look you will find many others as well.
