The standard relative-to-middle method of moving the camera in games like Multiwinia is horrible with absolute control systems like touchscreens and tablets. You'd also want separate controls for the camera and the mouse pointer, some alternative method for right-click, etc.
The only games I can play on my touchscreen are Plants vs Zombies and the like.
Both Iphone and the new and underwhelming ipad can sense one, two, and three finger taps and movements, right click and middle mouse buttons solved
The problem with two-finger-tapping-for-double-clicking in a game like Darwinia is that a double click is meant to be coordinated with a cursor position. So not only do you have to use two fingers, but you have to use them in the correct location. The two-finger-tap is not a good replacement for double clicking in a game. Moreover, that does not address the more substantive complaint, i.e. that the camera's position is adjusted to center on the cursor, which does not work well with an absolute position on the tablet.
double click = double tap
right click = two finger tap
move camera = drag finger
zoom = pinch in/out
and let's not forget about the motion controlls
iPhone/ipad, for the most part, can do anything you can do with a mouse, although moving the camera position might be a bit difficult with the tilt controlls
