Jet Boat is the correct answer. =D>
I must be making these too easy!

Okay then, another audio one:

Which game is this ear-piercingly shrill sound effect from?

ENVELOPE 2,2,253,0,0,7,0,0,127,0,0,0,110,0
SOUND 2,2,250,-1

Play in jsBeeb

Press Escape to stop the pain!

Don’t recognise that sound... thought it could’ve been Microbe, but I checked and it isn’t...

It reminds me of a sound from a game when the character dies - I think its some sort of maze game - can't think of which one...

I remember the monster from Spacemaze scaring the absolute crap out of me. The map didn’t work on my version of the game, and I had NO idea the game contained a monster... I was NOT ready for that jumpscare..!

Sounds like a bomb from Stryker’s Run, but it can’t be that because that doesn’t feature the other sound...

Sounds a bit like the level completion sound from Crack Up... but again, it can’t be that.

I’m wondering if it’s another game I’ve never played...

I've got the phrase " [Character name's] time has come" when they die... but still can't think of the game :D

Hmm, this must be more difficult than I thought it was.
So let's try a graphic clue:

Must be a game I’m not familiar with - my memory’s normally pretty good, but that image doesn’t ring any bells for me..!

Graphic was easy, I’d have got it from the sound if only I’d listened. #-o

Won’t forget that game... was included with our Beeb when we got it in 1984, had great loading music as the tape chugged away!

Spent a good part of my youth playing this annoyingly addictive game. Funny it was called "Duck!", as it sounds a bit like what I cried out whenever I died... :-#
