Under certain circumstances player's controls may malfunction or behave unexpectedly, commonly as a product of drunkenness, confusion status effect, or similar.
Alternate names: Altered controls, Inverted controls
The first video game about Control malfunction was released in 1985.
A more recent variation causes characters to move erratically on their own while poorly responding to controls, possibly moving slightly off target and so forth.
Note: This is not for controller malfunctioning, only for intentional cases.
