The clickable, but invisible, hotspot zones (also called image maps for those who still remember html courses) have been replaced by easy to spot links.
The good thing is it has been made possible to play the game on tablets and phones like that, because with a fat finger you can't hover over an invisible link. Well, I would be daft to forbid the Creator to make the game tablet-friendly, but I can't unthink the impression that this is another case where new technology leads to a further nivellement par le bas instead of creating an intellectual boost of the masses.
Advice I`ll give is to choose your options over the progression of the night, not of a particular sequence -- i.e. With all the graphic sex scenes out there, this is a disappointment. The buttons make it easier to evaluate all possible options rather than searching the screen for the hotspots and the graphics are excellent,.
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...
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.

If people used my art in cool ways (see the “Related Content” links on this page), it probably wouldn’t bother me much that they left out the required attribution, but as a friend of mine pointed out: I’m giving this app one star, and it only earned that star by being free.
This came to my attention because a popular You Tube video series called “Reviewing Bad Apps” featured it in volume 4 at approximately the mark.
I'm sorry, but this is the time of the year I get my annual Frankfurter Schule identity crisis.
Little by little the original (and rather cute) Ariane #1 graphics are being replaced by their modern equivalent, starring the new Ariane who can be seen in SITA.
