Type Car

Amount 30 seconds in Carma2,
10 in CarmaTDR

The Drink Driving powerup, known as Reversed Controls in Carmageddon: TDR 2000, inverts the player's controls. This means that forward makes the car brake/drive in reverse. Reverse makes it accelerate forwards. Left is right and right is left. During this time, the FOV wobbles back and forth a little, to simulate the "world spinning" effect. To further add to the "sensation", the driver is heard burping every 2 - 3 seconds. Although this can confuse the player, this powerup is not all bad. All points earned when drunk are tripled.

In Carmageddon: TDR 2000, this powerup doesn't triple the player's score, so it's only an annoyance. Luckily, it only lasts 10 seconds. It also doesn't make burping noises or warp the screen. This is because the powerup's icon shows a Martini rather than a can of beer, which is less carbonic.

  • The 'evening occifer' is a slurred version of saying 'evening officer!', a likely sign of the driver being drunk.
