Gun-Free Action Game Apps

Action game apps are exciting for kids who love to avoid obstacles and accomplish goals. They can also be great ways to unwind and relieve stress. But often, characters in action games use firearms. If you want an app that isn't fueled by gunpowder and ammunition, look no further. The titles below are all fun and action-packed, but they won't force your kid to shoot anything or anyone. Keep in mind that some of these games still pack a punch, so if you don't want any violence, check out our list of Nonviolent Video Games, and if you'd prefer peaceful movies, check out our list of Nonviolent Films.
