Monster Legacy is our biggest game yet and I think players from around the world will love its compelling story and exciting gameplay.  We couldn’t be happier to be working with Facebook on their exciting new pilot program. We’ve used their Mobile Install Ads from day one and I think it’s the most effective channel for finding and engaging players.
