Could you please give some more detail about this game? (full title, publisher... whatever may help us to know what you're talking about)

Izzy's Adventure is an adventure game based on Izzy, the Atlanta 1996 Summer Olympics mascot, released for the PC in 1996.[1] It is an educational adventure game and notable for being one of the last games by British developer and publisher U.S. Gold.

In the years leading up to the 1996 Olympics, the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games began a multimedia blitz surrounding Izzy, which resulted in the widely available Izzy's Quest for the Olympic Rings video game for the SNES and Sega Genesis consoles, as well as the lost Izzy's Quest for Olympic Gold animated TV movie. Izzy's Adventure is one of the lesser known projects based on the character, and is described as an adventure game where Izzy must search rooms for medals that are accompanied by blurbs of information on the Olympics.

... Is there a demo somewhere? Was it actually sold or distributed as an advertising of the event?

Not the official game of the event so unlikely... Given the media ridicule of it and the last game from U.S. Gold before they were qcquired by Eidos, I suspect it had a very limited run :|

videogamefan: That is very unlikely for the reasons you have already been informed about here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14836#p87158
