You might look for games like lost vikings, similar gameplay. Not day of the tentacle by any chance?

Do you recall if it was on dos, windows 3.1, or windows 95/98?

Then you could look through the mobygames strategy/tactics lists by platform, maybe click on the years to limit it to the late '90s:

I think one of the Eschelon games from Basilisk games started like that. Worth a look, at least.

Was it top-down or sideview? Treademarks- or metal slug-like, or something different?

Win95 came with Hover!, a future tank game, worth a look.

And there was an ancient moon patrol arcade game, ...
