    Did you look in one of your folders to make sure it did not accidentally get place in one of them?

    are you jailbroken?
    it happens with my iPad, its jailbroken and sometimes some app icons or even the AppStore icon was missing. i just closed all the apps and did a hard reboot then everything was fine.

    Did you look as i mentioned in any folders to make sure that it did not land on reinstall in a folder like if you had a folder with all your games or any other folder? Did you look in iTunes with your phone hooked up to make sure next to the game in the list of your apps that the button does say that it is installed? If you uninstalled it and now that you did a hard reset to remove any remnants and reinstalled the app, The app and it's icon should be on one of your panels or like I said may have gotten put in a folder?

    So all of this and you cannot tap it on your phone and it will not open or everything else is present as you stated but it is NOT on your phone(The App Icon)?

    Did you try a spotlight search? How to do a Spotlight search: 1) go to first page on home screen, 2) swipe from left to right, 3) start typing in the name of app,song,mail... And if that doesn't work then, I don't know.

    Connect your device to your computer and then fire up the computer's iTunes app. Once iTunes detect your device, scroll through the device's homescreens via iTunes and see if you can locate the app. If not, do an iTunes backup. Afterwards, see if the app is listed among the synced apps as displayed via iTunes. If it is, uninstall it via itunes and then reinstall it via iTunes.

    "Restrictions" was never used to my knowledge.
    I enabled Restrictions, including setting a passcode (found in Settings, General).
    I turned off the missing app, turned it back on, and then disabled restrictions.
    It appeared back on the home screen!

    Hope this helps someone.
