I am looking for an old Apple game, at least I only played it on the
apple, but it may have even older roots.

You are given a robot and a maze and the robot has to reach a

small circuit.  Every time the bot bumps one of the walls a switch can
open or close which in turn can change the direction the bot is moving

I would like to find the source code for this program, but a version I
can run under windows/unix/mac or contact details of the author would
be a start.

game I was looking for, it is closely related, so it will do.
