Please help me identify this platform/shooter!

I can't even tell whether this game was commecial or PD. I had found it on one of those bootleg magazine coverdisks which have games renamed, trained and sometimes localised. It was around 1990-91, can't remember quite well.

I do remember its 'dummy' title to be "Codex", but I don't have a clue as to what its original title could be.

Unfortunately I don't have that disk any longer so I can't provide a screenshot. I believe it was a demo, as it ended after two brief levels.

It's a side-scrolling platform/shooter with large detailed sprites and generally low pace. The main character is an unbelievably muscular guy whose face is not far from a gorilla's. He had a jetpack with limited fuel.

The first level I saw is in the wilderness, the second in some sort of fortress.

I also remember a picture showing this guy next to some sort of scuba-diving woman. I always believed this second character to be played on further levels.
