What's wrong with my iPod touch battery indicator?

The battery indicator on my iPod touch seems quite erratic. Like - I'll get a 20% warning while playing a game, but when I exit it goes up to two-thirds.

Is that normal? Is it because it thinks the game will drain the battery really quickly?

Yeah, battery life is only an estimate of how much power remains if you continue to use that power in the same way. If you alter the usage then it needs to be recalculated.
