    You're trying to add them though iTunes, right? Do you get any error messages?

    If you had Poof or Categories or something like that, the apps may have actually been on the phone, but hiding. That's all I can think of.

    Yeah the games are most likely on your phone, but hidden.

    First try this:

    Go to Settings>General>Restrictions>Enable Restrictions
    Create a passcode and confirm it.
    Now Disable Restrictions. (and confirm your passcode).

    So basically you just Enable restrictions, then disable them again.

    Return to your home screen. Are the missing games visible again?
