I regard that as a variant of sampling, and in my book that is totally ok! It's one thing to rip graphics and say that YOU made it, but since this is not the case I don't think there's any thievery to speak of. The game itself is old enough to have fallen into the abandonware category already anyway methinks, and I don't think you'd even get as much as a grumpy email from the original makers.
Something new from something old.
Edit: And besides you could always email them and tell them a little about your hobbyproject and ask if it's ok with them to use their old material. Could be worth to note that the original game is 20 years old now.
