Suggestions for 0-player games?

I am looking for a screensaver kind of game, where I can leave my iPhone charging on my desk and periodically glance at what's happening.

The Sims seemed like it would be a good match: just create a character and set him lose on the city, but even with Autonomy turned on, my guy will just stare at his wall for hours so obviously I misunderstood what autonomy means here.

The closest I've found is to start a LASW skirmish with no human player, but the large maps make it so that a quick glance often shows nothing at all going on on the screen.

Is there any other game that supports AI only play?

Along the same lines, my toddler likes watching sports games on his iPad, but he doesn´t play at all so we end up watching tons of "Manchester Blue 0-8 Manchester Red" matches in First Touch. I seem to recall both FIFA and Madden on the original XBOX (my last console) allowed you to setup AI vs AI Games, is there any sports game like that for iOS? (the sport really doesn't matter much, my kid will happily yell "Goool" whenever a ball is involved).

Godville but the game has bad themes and references. I wouldn't recommend it but that's the only game I can think of.

Playing: Infinity Blade II, Angry Birds
Favorites: Puzzle Agent, Paladog, Game Dev Story, Lara Croft
Beta Tested: Fara, Monster Trainer, Homerun Battle 2

Fractalis Puzzle Gallery is really cool - but you have to unlock each puzzle first before using the images it creates. Then you can use them as desktop images. Your toddler might like the colors and all.

It's not really a game, but it is a neat screensaver: Illumanti or something like that.
