STORY and emotions games on iOS?

Exist for iOS game with emotional scenes or with amazing story? (on PC eg: Indigo Prophecy - Fahrenheit)

Hmmm...Maybe look into Chaos Rings. I wasn't bothered to play the whole game, but read the spoilers online, and the story looks to be really interesting and could probably fit your criteria. Other great games with interesting storylines are Broken Sword and Phoenix Wright. Sacred Odyssey is another good one, if you're not into point and click games. It's story is far inferior to those of the game's mentioned earlier, but I'd still say it's pretty decent and probably the best from Gameloft.

Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery draws these really abstract, wonderous feelings when you play it. Really cool story...

Phoenix Wright has a super unbelievable, ridiculous story that's really fun to play through anyway.

Spider: Secret of Bryce Manor, by now an Appstore "classic," is storytelling in an innovative exploring format where you must piece the story together by yourself.

This is definitely a department that iOS is lacking in.
Story is one of the reasons why I haven't gone all-iOS

If you don't mind visual novel:
That is definitely the best visual novel on app store. Quite expensive, but worth the money. Try the lite version first.

You're not really going to find this on the iOS platform. Premium Storytelling denotes an extra level of polish that indie developers often can't afford and major developers often don't want to spring for. Even in something like Galaxy on Fire 2, where they really did try, it still fell flat for me. Same thing with Chaos Rings. The storytelling never feels console-quality to me, in any iOS game, even though various other elements of certain games do feel console-like at times.
