Its just as the title says. Electronic Arts' Mass Effect game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Mass Effect Galaxy, is now on the App Store, and it looks like it does tie in to Mass Effect 2 (Xbox 360 and PC).
According to AppGamer, upon completion of the game players can login with their EA account to confirm the accomplishment. Doing so will trigger a message that says "Your reward for completing the game is already waiting for you in Mass Effect 2."
There's no word yet on what the "reward" is, and we'll probably have to wait until Mass Effect 2's release to find out. Those who want to play through the game can get it from the App Store for US 4.99. Be warned, though -- user reviews so far haven't exactly been stellar.
