Created by Willems Davy
 
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 allawed or not and you either have to end in the middle or not.

Installation?
Installation is simple just copy over the Rubido folder to your sd card The source folder and readme.txt file is not needed for the game!

How do i play it?
BUTTON A:Select a menu option, Select difficulty, Select/Move a Peg on the board.
BUTTON B:Deselect the currently selected peg.
BUTTON SELECT:Quit To Title Screen, Quit The game
BUTTON Start:Select a menu option, Select difficulty.
JOYSTICK:Move The Blue Selector on the board, Switch difficulty, Switch menu item.


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. Once U have selected your difficulty the game will start. You can move the blue selector over a peg and press the A 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.

Credits:
Rubido is made by Willems Davy, Also known as Joyrider.
A big thanks goes out to THB for testing the game and giving me some tips about the game design (The difficulty screens idea came from him).I don't know who the original author of the music is, it's a music i used before on the windows version and had laying around on my hard disk. All Graphics are made by me using Paint Shop Pro 7.

Notes:
Rubido is freeware, No money can be asked for it, it can however be freely distributed around by any means possible.The source code is included. You can use this source code for educational purposes only if you use any part of the code don't forget to credit me by preferably putting a link to my website in the readme. You may not recompile this source code and redistribute it around without my written approval.The source code is all in one big CPP File, it's just the way how i currently work, since i'm new to c++ and haven't learned certain things yet. I also don't know if everything i do is good coding, but i don't care i'm happy if the end result is there. You will need devkitgp2x and paeryn's SDL hardware libaries for it to compile.

If you like this game, please consider donating, it doesn't matter how much u donate. If you don't feel like donating then place a link to my website on your website.
