A repeater is any logic circuit that produces a repeating cyclic output.

The primary importance of these circuits is that they allow the designer to control components in a level a) without reliance on buttons and switches, and b) on a per-tick basis instead of a per-move basis.

Many types of repeaters can be constructed. Here is a list of some notable types of repeaters:

Binary Repeaters: (often used as the base component for more advanced designs)

  • Even Repeater: Output is TRUE on even ticks and FALSE on odd ticks
  • Odd Repeater: Output is TRUE on odd ticks and FALSE on even ticks

Toggle Wall Repeaters: (useful for precision control of monster movement)

Timer Repeaters: (useful for producing in-level timers)

  • (x+60n) Repeater: Output is TRUE on tick x and every 60th tick after x (output occurs exactly once per second)

Only two repeaters are found within the official levelset. The first is an Even Repeater which drives the bonus flag timer in level 100 (CRAZY I), and the second is a (3+60n) repeater which drives the bonus flag timer in level 200 (CRAZY II).
