"I have never seen such a large clockwork mechanism before, it is as if the entire tower is some tremendous machine. But for what purpose, I wonder?"
—The Prince[1]

The Mechanical Tower is a secondary building located within the Fortress of Time.


The Mechanical Tower was established next to the Fortress of Time, and was accessible to the left of the Central Hall of the fortress' entrance. The tower was constructed of two parts: The Mechanical Pit, and the Activation Room.

During his journey on the Island of Time, the Prince was told by Kaileena (who pretended to be a servant of the Empress of Time) that, in order to gain access to the Throne Room, he would have to activate the tower by himself.

The Prince maneuvered his way through the past and present state of the Mechanical Tower using Time Portals. While in the Mechanical Pit, the Prince encounters the Sand Wraith again. When he reached the heart of the activation room, he obtained three master gears he needed to complete the tower in order to activate it.

Once the Prince centered the three master gears, he rotated the switch and the gears began the process of activating the tower. Inside the Activation Room, the Prince encountered the Brute. He lured the Sand Creature to the center of the room and fought the creature to his advantage. During his battle with the Brute, the Prince fought a number of Spike Beasts, who was also attacked by the Brute, who threw them at the Prince in an effort to kill him.

The Prince returns to the tower once he learns about the mask of the wraith. He enters the tower through a secret passage from the fortress's library. The Prince arrives in the tower a third time as the sand wraith, this time he entered from the Mystic Caves. A Brute sneaks up behind him and tosses him into a hole in the wall. The prince remains unconscious for an unknown time, and when he awakens he begins to question if he is "too late".[1]
