MAP25: Cow Face is the twenty-fifth map of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Adolf Vojta and uses Mark Klem's "Dry Rot", the music of Requiem's MAP18: Base of Thorn and MAP23: Hatred. The version of "Dry Rot" used in this level plays at a slower tempo for unknown reasons.

Inspiration and development[edit]

Adolf Vojta's comments from the text file:

I thought I would do a map similar to HR map 25, but the result seems rather different and Radeg said it reminds HR map 32. So it's probably inspired by both of them. The name of the map is strange but when I watched it on the automap... I saw there a face of cow so why not to use it as a title? :)


Map of Cow Face
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. The sector where the player gets teleported to from the starting one is marked as secret, and cannot be missed. (sector 9)


  • You can get stuck in sector #285 if the arch-vile that teleports behind you make you archie-jump in its place before its death.
  • I also got stuck in the extreme south-left of sector #106.
