The Drugs!!! powerup (known as Woooaaaaahhh!!! in Carmageddon TDR 2000), causes a bold visual effect that represents and parodies drug use. It causes the screen to wobble, and makes the screen palette oscillate between bright clashing colors. The shaking screen and weird colors are intended to put off the player, catching them off-guard and making it difficult to see what's going on.

Due to the effect's nature, for some people it could possibly trigger an epileptic seizure. Luckily, it only lasts for 5 seconds and is not common.

Trivia[edit]

  • The smiley face icon for this powerup has a meaning… In the late 1980s illegal raves grew in popularity in the UK, where clubbers would regularly take Acid (better known as LSD). A yellow smiley face was considered an emblem for Acid House, a genre of music that spawned from these events and the drug.
