Gameplay with this version (with help options) was my favorite so far. Also, it would help to have some sort of a meter that shows whether you are doing the right things or not, else it is just wild guessing This is one very hot and sexy game, Ariane is a veritable fox. The story was fun if a bit "hit or miss" However the back up feature aided in that annoyance. Takes a time to work out how best to negotiate your way through the choices (complex) but when you get it right it`s very rewarding. I`ve always loved this game, by far one of my favourites on the site and the update is really good. A couple of weeks ago (see: A New Ariane) it was revealed how Ariane's features were going to be upgraded as the earlier model dated from about a decade ago.
a kiss won`t progress to something more in THIS action but rather if you kissed her earlier, progress it now. I am having one slight issue though in that every time I follow her into the bathroom it ends the game saying `don`t come in unless I invite you` and gives me a 4/10 even though we`d just had sex in the hot tub and she invited me in... Got two differnt endings so far, going to try for more. Good game, especially if you use the tips and tricks. And last but not least, you can restart the only scene in which you are with recharge button (Ctrl R) ! This was the first one I ever played and it keeps getting better. Ramp up the romance slowly but surely; too fast and she`ll kick you out, too slow and she`ll get bored. Often Ariane will suggest activites (some wine would help her relax, go lower, etc). It is a little odd that listening to her suggestions during the date tend to end the date, so the tips really can help. Worth playing again and again and again to see all the possible scenarios and endings, and try various combinations of them. Great story, great scenes, and innovative ways to get through to the ends. This game has so many ways to go, so many twist and turns. She tells you to do something and then ends the date when you do. Do NOT listen to her, as this will often end the date. Nice that there are different branches that you can succeed on, it really helps with the replayability. Sometimes even the same scenario is different just based upon what you`ve done earlier in that playthrough Fantastic game ! I`ve play it for months and am still finding diffrent things. This is probably one of the first dating sim game I played and still one of my favorites. Consider the balance of stats above and be sure not to push one of them too far too fast.
