The OP has already specified that anything online isn't an option in the school environment.

The snarky side of me says this is just one reason why schools relying on iPads is dumb.

// Does anyone know of a software-based version? Or even just a way to compile and test the games on an iPad (even from a Web site that does not require an account), from source typed into a text editor?

The OP didn't rule out a web based solution entirely, just one that required an account and possible adult interaction.

I am a retired science teacher. We used web based learning and web quests extensively. The teacher had to monitor things closely. The students are unlikely to have any supervision outside of school.

PS. The school system where I taught issues iPads to every middle and high school student. It eliminates the cost of text books. The iPads are also used extensively in learning. Each school including the elementary schools have school wide wifi with internet access. Problem web sites are blocked by the district system. I thought they should have purchased Kindle Fire HDs rather than iPads due to cost and built in youth restrictions if enabled. My wife still teaches there, the teachers have little risk from internet usage. Besides, the www is almost considered a necessity these days. Children should learn how to use it wisely.
