Rubin.io – Tips and Tricks Guide: Hints, Cheats and Strategies

Rubin.io is a new game for the iOS and Android platforms that plays like a reverse version of the old Columns game on the Sega Genesis. Your goal is to swap gems around at the bottom of the screen and make matches of three or more gems of the same color. You have to do this quickly so that you can stay ahead of the timers adn get the highest score possible. Read on for some tips and tricks for Rubin.io!

When you get to the end in the endless mode, that’s where your top score sits, but you can continue once if you hit “play on” to watch one advertisement video. Once the video is done, then you will start over again with some time left on the timer. You can continue with more time multiple times, making it so that you can essentially get an unlimited high score.

The zen mode differs from the endless mode in one key way. The zen mode is endless, but instead of having a timer running down at the bottom of the screen, you simply have to clear out enough gems to continue on, and once you clear them out, you can continue. Once you run out of space on the board, then you lose at the zen mode.

Sometimes when you begin a new game, the game will start with no graphics loaded. It will just show a bunch of white squares. If this happens, tap the white square in the top right corner of the screen to close out the game and restart with another new game. The new new game will load up with all of the correct colors, so it will be playable at that point.

Matching gems will give you more time in marathon mode. Making multiple matches in a row will also give you more points, with each consecutive match being worth more points. The point thing works for zen mode too, and in zen mode you will have time to sit and think and set up combos for some extremely high scores.

The main key to breaking the high scores in this game is simply to watch the ad videos a ton of times. That’s how all of the top people on the global leaderboards got their high scores, by continually hitting ‘play on’ so that they could keep playing endlessly and racking up a higher and higher score.
