You're right, that game is listed as one still sold at the 3D Realms website (they have released some games as freeware, like Bio Menace or Alien Carnage but this one isn't among them).

It isn't abandonware, it's freeware. The developer has released the game as such several years ago.
Freeware status trumps sold status.

Freeware status trumps sold status.
They did? So the 3DR website has outdated info? Or do they still sell the game despite its being legally obtainable for free from elsewhere?

[Edit] Is that somehow related to the platform (DOS version vs. Windows version)?

I'm not sure if the buying form really works on the 3D Realms site.

The latter. I don't think anyone told them.

Now I remember, I've seen Death Rally mentioned at Liberated Games.
