What is it?
Rubido is a chinese checkers clone, it's also known as Solitaire in certain countries. You have a board filled with pegs where you jump over another peg to an empty place and by this you remove the peg you jumped over. Depending on the difficulty you diagonal movement is allowed or not and you either have to end in the middle or not.

Before you can install the game you need to install it's dependencies which are availible from the maemo extra's repositries.

How do i play it?
The game can be fully played with the touchscreen and keyboard:
You start at the title screen where you select new game. You are then presented with the option to choose the difficulty. I'll Explain the different difficulties later. You can change difficulty by tapping on the current selected difficulty text. Once U have selected your difficulty Tap "PLAY" and the game starts. You can move the blue selector over a peg and press the DPAD MIDDLE button to select it, the peg will turn blue, then select the place you want the peg to be moved to. This must be an empty spot and you must jump over an extra peg. If the move is valid, the extra peg you jumped over will be removed. Repeat this till you meet the goal for the selected difficulty.
What are these difficulties all about?
In the very easy difficulty setting you can jump over pegs horizontal,vertical and diagonal. You have to end with one peg left but it doesn't matter where the location of this last peg is.
