Help I'm stuck inside a computer!

Looking to learn the name of a BBC Micro (?) game where you went inside a computer and solved various puzzles to free (?) the computer from bugs or aliens.

The game imagery was very "microchips and copper tracks" heavy, and I think you could select a new puzzle by choosing one chip or another. The game screen was mostly black, blue, and red. I recall that at about six to eight years old some of the puzzles were above me, so I think the target players would be more 11 to 12.

I must have played this game some time between 1988 and 1992, if that helps. Also, I think it was clearly meant to be educational first with game elements added, not the other way around.

Thanks!

Response by poster: No, sadly that's not it. It was more puzzle than action.

It's not Robot Odyssey, is it?

Even if Robot Odyssey isn't it, try it anyway. It taught me logic gates. Never did beat the sonic lock, though.

A longshot (not BBC Micro) but maybe 3 in three?

For Apple systems, there was "Short Circuit", but it doesn't quite match your memories.

Response by poster: No, it is none of them. But thank you anyway.
