Mass Effect Galaxy released for iPhone, iPod touch

BioWare and EA have collaborated to release
Mass Effect Galaxy for the iPhone and iPod touch. It’s available for purchase from the App Store for $5.
Based on BioWare’s action role-playing game for the Xbox 360 and Windows, Mass Effect Galaxy is exclusive to the iPhone. It’s a storytelling adventure with an animated graphic novel look and feel and very different gameplay from its forebear—it uses tilt controls and is less “RPG-ish,” better suited for the iPhone.
In Mass Effect Galaxy, you take the role of Jacob Taylor, trying to foil a plot to knock humanity off the galactic stage, hatched by alien terrorists who are preparing to stage a biological assault against the human race.
The game even features two man characters who will appear in Mass Effect 2, the upcoming sequel to the popular console and PC game.
