Yes. Here is one on the app store. I cannot vouch for this app's quality, however, having never used/played it.

It's pretty good. Strange touch interface. You get used to it after a while. – St. John Johnson Sep 7 '10 at 20:55
There are two iPhone clients that I've found. The linked one is superior by far. It allows you to use a number of different graphics sets, and incorporates a gesture system that works very well once you know a few of the more common commands. – sjohnston Nov 15 '10 at 1:28
