MAP18: The Train Is Approaching is the eighteenth map of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Adolf Vojta and uses the Level 1 theme from Last Ninja 2, arranged for MIDI by Christer Holm. The WAD's text file credits the music to Alien Vendetta[1], where it was used on MAP01 in the first release and MAP24 in the second.

Inspiration and development[edit]

Adolf Vojta's comments on this level[1]:

For this map I let inspired myself by AV maps 06 & 24 by Lee and Fish. Both of them are an excellent map with an excellent design. I tried to do a map similar to these but I did a layout with many ways and possible routes to complete. At the start you really don't know where to go so you have to just walk away and seek.
