Game data is included in the iPod backup that both iCloud and iTunes makes. Just make sure that you do not backup the iPod after restoring the iPod to factory settings/new iPod since the new backup may overwrite the previous backup.
Also, some games maintain status on servers so all you have to do is sign in with the same account, Most GameCenter games are that way.
