GameMaker, but for the AppStore you need the payment version.

 

There is also cocos2d: I haven't direct experience on this, but looks promising (and free).

Game Maker is a pretty good engine (Maybe better to work with for 2D than Unity3D, but that's just me). Its inner c-like programming language is quite powerful.

I suggest you take a look in Love2d ( www.love2d.org ) its a easy and good 'framework' to 2d gamedev...

 

Its pretty easy to learn. It have lots of documentation..

 

You script your game in LUA, you can even use pixel and vertex shaders... 

 

Well.. and its free, run on Mac, Linux and Windows.... it worth a try.. :)
