90's PC game...cannot remember this at all

Hey guys, I'm new to this site.

Anyway, theres a computer game I used to play when I was anywhere between 7-13 (I am now 22 years old) that I just cannot remember.

I played on a PC.
It starred a character that had a red shirt, with brown hair and a pony tail. Looked like a friendlier version of disney's Gaston.
The game took place in a castle, where you would battle medieval bad guys in hand to hand combat (almost like martial arts) or with the occasional sword. It was incredibly hard for me at the time. If i remember correctly, the games plot was to find your lady friend. There were also green troll like bad guys, and winged opponents too. If I remember correctly, you would go in different rooms and explore to find ways in deeper into the castle. There were chests and keys too, if memory serves me right.
The game was in 3D.
Also, I am 100% sure it is NOT Dragon's Lair. This game started out with you fighting in a castle that wasn't so fantasy-like. it was also the kind of game that had a fixed camera depending on the room (not entirely sure on this fact though). the cover of the game had a whole lot of dark imagery, including a woman with batwings? I really can't remember it well.

Any help is appreciated

Welcome to RU, glad to see you took my advice and made the trip over from EVG. Wish I could answer this but I'm still at a loss. Btw you should consider getting an avatar to go along with that username. Welcome to RU.

Re: 90's PC game...cannot remember this at all

That game sounds sort of familiar to me, what can you tell me about the hand-to-hand combat? Was it fast paced or slow paced?

Re: 90's PC game...cannot remember this at all

The hand to hand combat was supposed to be fast paced, but because it was an early game, it was kind of slow. for some reason I can kind of remember the main character doing some sort of spin kick? I never got too far in the game, so I don't know about advanced tactics. it was all real time fighting though, so no turn based fighting system or anything of the sort.

Yeah, I'm drawing a bit of a blank here. I know it sounds familiar to me, if I think of it, I'll let you know.
