Shadow Warrior, scam or real?

http://appshopper.com/games/shadow-warrior

Do they have the right to republish this game?
Is it at all real?

This game is marketed as free but can only be played properly if "opened" with iap.

Almost bought this one but I feel put off by the cheap (lying) marketing of it as free and will not buy a game that will be pulled off the store if it is stolen.

The only reason I didn't delete this thread is so that other people who might have the same concern can see this.

Shadow Warrior is 110% real.

And yes, the first 4 levels are free and the rest of the game can be bought through a $1.99 IAP.

Didn't you see the number of front-page articles or even this weeks "Coming Tonight" post? This port is fully backed by 3D Realms.

General Arcade's 3D Realms port, Shadow Warrior, is definitely legitimate, it's also a reasonable port. Apparently they are also working on another port(s).
