MAP21: Diablo's Heart is the twenty-first map of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Adolf Vojta and uses the E2M3 music from Heretic. The version of the music used in this level plays at a slower tempo for unknown reasons.

Inspiration and development[edit]

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

The second red-cave map but slightly harder than map11 :) And also pretty different gameplay. For some time you have no weapons and you have to reach them in a pacifist-way. Then most of cells are placed at the exit so then you could finally go back and kill most of the cratures [sic] which annoyed you all the time :)
And I think it's my only map without SSG...

Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


Other points of interest[edit]


  1. One of the steps near the starting area is tagged as a secret. You can jump over it if you are fast enough. (sector 73)
  2. The room with the switch that will blow up Romero's head in the distance is tagged as a secret and is unavoidable. (sector 135)
