Zeeek is a creative runner game revolving around the world of music. Evil ‘Silencios’ wish for a quiet world, and it’s your job to save the sound. It’s a little rough around the edges, but Midgar Studios have done a good job.
The story line is pretty simple. Beings named Silencios are out to steal the world of sound, whilst Zeeek looks to collect as many musical notes as he possibly can, destroying hundreds of Silencios in the process.
The game begins with a short tutorial, explaining the jump, double jump and attack moves which all come in handy at different points in the frantic gameplay. Spelling and grammatical errors in the tutorial reduce the polish on the game, but it’s not the end of the world – so to speak.
Zeeek is a speedy runner, and although it start off slow, you have three separate speed options in Normal, Expert & Speed Expert. The latter option proves to be insanely fast, and adds a great deal of fun & mayhem to an already entertaining game.

Zeeek’s visuals are less enticing than it’s addictive gameplay. The backgrounds seen within each level are cute and creative, but won’t be raising any eyebrows for those solely interested in high standards of graphical content. Zeek has it’s strong points, but visuals are not from amongst them.
