Deactivated (top) and activated (bottom) timers.

A Timer is a triggering mechanism that continually activates other mechanisms at regular intervals. Timers are toggled on and off by pressing the Open / Activate button on them.

Timers need to be placed in order to function. They require either a block or a platform beneath them.

Timers can also 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 | edit source]

  • 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.
  • Timers are considered background objects when placed, so they do not block any creatures from passing through them.
  • On the 3DS version 3DS version, timers are bought from the Mechanic instead of being crafted, due to the fact that watches are unobtainable in this version.
  • Desktop Version 1/2 and 1/4 timers can be bought from Mechanic.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Mobile 1.3.0.7:
    • No longer sold by the Mechanic.
