Just sounds like one of Sega's Puzzle & Action / Tant-R series.

probably one of the first two (Tant-R or Ichidant-R) as they were bootlegged rather heavily to the point where for the Ichidant-R the Japanese version was the most common one, even outside of Japan despite an English version actually existing.

Each has a slightly different theme, the first one has police / detective like figures, the 2nd has knights and a more medieval theme.

There were another 2 sequels on ST-V too,

Sando-R (aka Treasure Hunt)
and
Taisen Tanto-R Sashissu!!

again with slightly different themes.

but it's most likely the original 'Tant-R'
