Commands are given to Blackguard by swiping screen and pressing
single characters on the keyboard.

to give help on. If you type a *, it will list all the

you type does.

A / followed by any character that you see on the level,

or run into a wall.

level, this command means to climb down (down).

you have the ability to climb back up a level, hopefully on
your way out (up).

s Search for traps and secret doors. Examine each space
immediately adjacent to you for the existence of a trap or
secret door. There is a large chance that even if there is
something there, you won't find it so you might have to
