You're probably thinking of Microsoft Quick C for DOS.
It had a "low-resolution" (character) graphics interface
and was available for DOS as well as Windows 3.1.
If you search the Internet for surplus software sites,
you might find a copy around; I seem to remember seeing
some sites in the past that had older stuff like this,
but I don't recall exactly where.

If you are comfortable with a command-line interface,
Microsoft C Version 6.0 was probably best version of
Microsoft C before Visual C++ (Version 8) came out.
