Home's [$0.99] full title on the App Store is 'Home - a Unique Horror Adventure,' and that seems to fit what it does pretty well. Presented in pixel-y 2D, it's a narrative-led adventure game that tasks you with fleeing a mysterious, no-good, seemingly very bad house. You do this by investigating all its nooks and crannies. There's the occasional "hidden" object hunt, but the majority of the experience revolves around discovering context -- the whys and the hows of the place you're stuck in.
Eli and I gave it a go the other afternoon and came away pretty impressed. Granted, we may have joked around a fair bit, but this is a really interesting game that offers an experience that you don't see too often on iPad or iPhone. Give it a look just below:
Just FYI: this is a port of the PC version of the game. This one controls pretty well, though, so there's really not much of a reason to check that version out unless you're really into the whole mouse and keyboard thing.
