Did you ever before purchase Deus Ex Go, the exceptional mobile puzzler from Square Enix Montreal that still rates amongst the leading 150 problem video games on the App Store regardless of billing real cash to download and install?

And it’s unclear why this is occurring with Deus Ex specifically. There should not be a legal rights problem, right? Embracer clearly acquired the legal rights to Deus Ex together with the mobile video games workshop that established the title.
