2. Fourth of July Mahjong (free)


One thing that is truly an American ideal is how this country is a splendid melting pot of cultures. This app celebrates that idea to the fullest, putting a holiday spin on a popular ancient Chinese game. The red, white and blue is well represented throughout from the background layout to the tiles. And the game is easy enough to pick up, and for those that need help, there is a tutorial.

3. Coloring on Fourth Of July (free)

This app is designed with your children in mind to keep them occupied until the fireworks are ready to begin. They can draw pictures on the screen, then save their artwork to show off later. But if they want more to do, their artwork can be used to create a puzzle game that will get their minds stimulated even further.

4. BANG!Fourth of July ($0.99)

This is a special edition of a 'Wild West' themed tactical game created by SpinVector S.p.A. In this game, every player has a different role and objective but they are secret to other players. You get to pick from great historical figures of the American Revolution like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Or if you're looking to add a different twist, play as King George III or Benedict Arnold.
