Deus Ex GO is a turn-based strategy puzzle game from Square Enix. One with lots of stealth, hacking, and corporate intrigue. Gamezeboâ€™s Deus Ex GO tips, cheats, and strategies will help you sneak your way through a semi-dystopian cyberpunk world, and leave as few witnesses as possible.
- Most enemies can be taken out by moving into their space from the sides or from behind. Never approach from the front if you can avoid it.
- Basic guards – these taser-stick wielding foot soldiers will run straight towards you on sight, activating a shield that makes them pretty much indestructible as long as theyâ€™re alerted.
- Guards only move in a straight line (to the space they last saw you and back to their original post), so they wonâ€™t follow you around corners. You can also use their temporary invulnerability to your advantage by putting them between you and a gun turret.
- While guards only move in two directions, they can still be tricky to get around. Bad planning or a weird level layout may put their shielded selves between you and your goal. Try to find ways to eliminate them or trap them.
- Guards can also undo your hacks if they land on a hacking space. This will set whatever object is connected to that hacking point back to its default state – reactivating red hexes, making turrets hostile again, etc.
- Gun turrets – turrets are stationary and only face a single direction, but passing in front of them is instant death.
- As stated before, you can use shielded guards to protect yourself from a turretâ€™s fire. You can also hack turrets to make them friendly – shooting enemy guards and leaving you alone.
- Turrets will not shoot through blocked (red) hexes.
- Red hexes – any space thatâ€™s red canâ€™t be walked through until you hack in to make it passable.
- Red hexes will block an enemyâ€™s line of sight.
- Reactivating a red hex while a guard is on it will trap the guard in that space indefinitely. Reactivating a hex in front of a moving guard will trap him as well, but in the space in front of the hex.
- Use red hexes and block shielded guards in order to protect yourself and keep paths clear.
- Security robots – the basic security bot simply sits and waits for intruders to walk up to its face and say â€śhi.â€ť Theyâ€™re only dangerous if you move to a space directly in front of them, so as long as you maintain at least a single space between you and the angry-looking red circle that denotes the botâ€™s â€śeyes,â€ť it wonâ€™t bother you.
- Cloaking power-ups wonâ€™t be in a level unless theyâ€™re needed. Whenever you see one of these floating turquoise icons floating in a hex, youâ€™re going to need to figure out how to grab it – and when to use it.
- Cloaking will only make you undetectable for a single space of movement. Once activated (by tapping the cloaking icon in the top-right corner of the screen, then on Jensen himself) youâ€™ll be able to move once without being seen. The next movement after that will cause the cloak to shut down and youâ€™ll be vulnerable again.
- You can take down enemies with a frontal attack while cloaked. Alerted guards are still shielded, however, so attacking them head-on will only drop your cloak and get you tasered in the face.
- Hacking is necessary in order to get around most turrets and through red hexes. To hack, step into a hacking space (denoted by a floating yellow computer icon) and tap on Jensen. Then trace a line from the hacking space to whatever object you intend to hack. Objects that appear red on this screen cannot be hacked.
- You can only hack one device from a single hacking location at any given time. You can change targets, but you wonâ€™t be able to hack two things at once from the same spot. Instead, youâ€™ll need to keep an eye out for a second (or third, etc) hacking location.
- Hacking lines canâ€™t be crossed. If you need to hack more than one thing at the same time, know that the paths you trace out will be very important. Once a path is drawn, no other lines can be drawn past it from other hacking spots. Keep this in mind when you trace.
- Every level has a optimum move count. Replaying a stage will display a move counter in the bottom-left corner of the screen, with your current number of moves/the maximum. If itâ€™s your first time playing a level, you can view the move counter by tapping on the menu button (the arrow) in the top-left corner of the screen.
- You can complete a level after exceeding the move limit, but if you want 100% completion – and a pretty gold level marker instead of standard black – youâ€™ll need to make every step count.
- Hacking does count towards your overall movement.
