Mass Effect Infiltrator
Mass Effect Infiltrator is a three-dimensional, third-person shooter which mimics many of the gameplay features and animations of the main Mass Effect games, including the use of cover and the combination of gunplay and biotic powers. The controls are simplified from the console games and adapted to fit a touchscreen interface; for example, there are no squadmates to control, and it is necessary to target enemies for biotic attacks by tapping directly on the screen.
The player is rewarded with credits over the course of the game, and these may be spent on upgraded weapons, armour and biotic abilities. The player also collects Intel, which can be exchanged for ingame credits or used to add to the player's Galactic Readiness score in Mass Effect 3. Upon the completion of the game, the player is rewarded with a new War Asset in their Mass Effect 3 game.
In April 2012 a major update was released for Mass Effect Infiltrator, bringing the version to 1.0.3. The update added an extra side mission in which the player takes the role of an escaped turian experiment victim, as well as the ability to manually aim weapons. The patch also includes technical optimisations designed for the third-generation iPad.
