Hehe, hadn't thought about that.    :=

Sadly, no, that's not the theme.   :wink:

The main character looks like Alex Kidd if he was drawn by Jim Davis.

In the old days you'd get all sorts of small company demo games with pc magazines. I suppose this fits that mold...

Mandle, not Alex Kidd   :smiley:

Kyria, no, it's a full game you could buy in a shop.  It's not a demo from a magazine.   :smiley:
According to MobyGames, it was released on Amiga, DOS (the version I have), Game Gear, Genesis, and SNES.

EDIT:  It's a puzzle game from 1993

Wow, this one has you all stumped.   :grin:

It's a puzzle game.  You have to rescue passengers from a ship that's slowly sinking.   :wink:
