The Time Twister Machine is a gigantic hub which opens large, orb-shaped passageways through time and space, built by Dr. Nefarious Tropy originally for the intention of gathering Crystals from the past to be used in powering up another variation of the Cortex Vortex. Its upper area hosts five different warp areas, each of which have six different warp portals to different historical areas, while its lower level is a factory where Dr. Neo Cortex manufactures robotic clones of his lab assistants and sends them through time to search for Crystals. The area in the lower level also hosts five warp portals, each of which is powered by relics, and each of which requiring a different amount of relics to enter through the portal.
