A Timer is a mechanism that continually activates other mechanisms at regular intervals. They are toggled on and off by right-clicking.

Timers themselves can be activated and deactivated using other mechanism activation items. For example, a Switch on the same path of Wires will toggle a Timer on and off. Multiple Timers on the same circuit will also repeatedly toggle each other on and off.

Notes[edit]

  • If a timer A activates another timer B with the same duration, B will trigger before A (thereby deactivating A before it can trigger again).
  • Exiting a world and re-entering it resets all Timers to their inactive state.
  • The Crab Engine and Bird Engine methods can be used to produce a similar effect at faster intervals.
  • The Timer must be placed above another block.
  • On Mobile version you can buy Timers from Mechanic for 50 Copper Coin.
