In their simplicity, Reverses are white orbs with a red "R" on the front.
In the gameplay of Sonic Drift 2, the player obtains Reverse when touching or driving over it. Additionally, its effects will immediately be activated upon being touched.
When obtaining Reverse, the player's steering controls on the D-Pad will be reversed, meaning pressing right on the D-Pad will make the playable character move left and vice versa. After a moment, however, the controls will return to normal.
