MAP27: Stairway to Heaven is the twenty-seventh map of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Adolf Vojta and (quite naturally) uses a MIDI rendition of Led Zeppelin's classic Stairway to Heaven.

Inspiration and development[edit]

Adolf Vojta's comments from the text file:

It's in fact 8 maps situated in space connected into the one. In each part you get one new weapon so you are beginning with pistol and berserk and ending with BFG. And surely, the gameplay becomes harder and harder... but not so hard I think. In this map I aimed more at design so maybe the gameplay suffers somewhere...
And it reminds eight minigolf holes in space.
