Have to back out of app., can't use home button

Three weeks ago Candy Crush stopped working on my phone, not sure why.  I started cleaning up my apps, clearing cache, etc.  Now when I have an app open I have to use the back key to get out.  The home key will not work.  Any ideas on how to get my home key back?

I do not have the Triumph, but does is have a physical home button?

If yes, does anything happen when you press the home button? During any operation on the phone? Like if you are on a different home screen and press the home button, does it go back to your home screen?

The only couple things that I can suggest would be that if it is a physical button, maybe it is broken hardware.

The true way to find this out would be to do a full factory reset. If your home button does not work after that, then I would lean more towards the button being broken, hardware wise.
