Anyone remember this game? I think I read about it in PC Gamer. Got it and it was pretty cool. There was this robot that you had to click in front of to guide it through obstacles. At first, it would walk really cautiiously, not sure if you were leading it into some trap. But as you made it progress successfully, it walked faster and faster. I cleared many levels but got stumped somewhere. Then just clicked erratically until it died a few times and then it wouldn't move at all coz it knew I was a bad person :D And that was that. Anyone remember the name? I feel like trying my luck again with that dumb robot :)

Google was no help directly but indirectly, I searched for abandonware pc robot game and came to a link with abandoned robot games. Third page of the results on that website listed the game.
