This is the complete walkthru of the game noctropolis.  I played this game many years ago,
and I enjoyed it a lot (esp. Stiletto).  I haven't played the game for a long time and I
probably won't in the future either.  How do I write this walkthru then, well it's mostly
based on the walkthru of Wout Delen (PcGameplay), who wrote a dutch walkthru for the game.
I just translated most parts and made some additions here and there to clarify some things.

If you have to say something, I'll give you a number.  Pick the sentence wich matches the

I urge you not to mail me with any questions you might have, since I probably can't solve
them anymore myself and I'm not going to replay the whole game.

a bit ... eventually he'll go away.  Once again the clock will appear.  Move the bottle of
acid in between you and Stiletto.  Take the empty bottle from the rack and open the door.
Stiletto will take care of Master Macabre.  Enter the door and take a bit of acid from the
