Classic 2D Wolfenstein? (request for info)

Hi.

Does anyone know if there is a chance the old, classic 2D Wolfenstein could be ported to the iPhone? Who is the trademark holder? I'd even love to be able to play it on my Mac just for the sake of nostalgia, but I haven't seen it anywhere anyplace at all. Bummer.

Any devs out there interested in putting a port together?

Did you try searching for Wolfenstein on the App Store? It might surprise you!

I'm guessing he means Castle Wolfenstein:

Wolf3D is a completely different game that has almost nothing to do with the original Muse adventure game except the name and that there are nazis in it.

Muse isn't in business anymore -- hasn't been for over 20 years -- but its original owner, Jack L. Vogt, still owns all IP rights to the original series. Someone could license it for a direct remake, I suppose, but I can't really see it happening.
