Autodesk TinkerBox seems like a fun game for iPad\iPhone\iPod that soon will be released.
Tinkerbox is an app that will be available for iPhone, iPod and iPad that is designed to bring engineering challenges and education to users of all ages in a 'game' like environment. There are various challenges, each one getting slightly tougher where users have to solve engineering problems like getting ball-bearings from one point to another using motors, plates, fasteners, rope, chains, conveyors etc. The intuitive interface allows you to drag and drop components from your toolbox into the working area to build a process. If you're not sure what something is or how it works, just use the interactive help to learn more about a motor for example. Via Autodesk Manufacturing Blog.
