Android version withdrawn from Google Play?

I can't find LBA android version in Google Play anymore. I know I'm a bit too late but I just happened to want to play it yesterday. There is no download link in dotemu website either. I only saw a link on an apk site but I prefer to get the game legally. Was it officially withdrawn after the release of the enhanced edition on Steam?

It doesn't work on modern versions of Android unfortunately. I had it on Google Play and on Humble Bundle. The version from Humble Bundle doesn't even start now (it needs to download files from a server which no longer exists first time playing after installing) and it has been completely delisted from Google Play. If Dotemu had maintained it to work on modern devices and kept the servers up it would probably still be there, but it is also possible that there are rights issues now since the series has changed hands along with development of LBA 3 starting.

I have a phone with Android 10, works perfectly well...

It's actually still possible to make it work if you get the Humble apk and copy over the files manually.

I stand corrected, thanks for the clarification! Where would I get the missing files? Can they be copied from the PC version of DotEmu's remake?

Emm... no...

While there are some files in common, most of them is specific to the Android version... The best would be for Humble Bundle to host them on their site, or have the rightful owners make them freely shareable

The the only way currently is to go out of the bounds of legality (even though you legitimately bought it) and find a place to download said files, or have someone share theirs with you.
