From the back of the box ...

"The escape from the prison of the Timelords was treacherous. Only your courage and savage will to live have brought you to this point. But this is only the beginning! The beginning of a flight for survival. "

"... Within the caves there are many dangerous twisting corridors filled with defending dirigibles, energy barriers, and deadly air currents. Monstrous earthquakes threaten your every move. Not great odds, but who said it was going to be fair?"

Although this box features an unusually melodramatic write up for this game, Synapse software produced a variety of games for the Atari family of computers. They released their games in cartridge, disk and tape formats. They specialized in arcade style adventure games. This game is a lot of fun.

The package is complete. Instructions are present in the box

An interesting tidbit with the cassette version of this game was the inclusion of music while the game loaded. Since the Atari used only one of the stereo channels on the cassette, Synapse put music on the other, which played through the cassette drive's speaker. On Zeppelin, there's a synthesized version of Pachelbel's Canon and the William Tell Overture.
