Your duty in Safety First! is to carry out electric maintenance by fixing broken cables. Each level is a physics-based puzzle which challenges you to mend a number of damaged wires; your only tool is a supply of Magical Yellow Repair Liquid (myrl), which you squirt out of an indecently-placed appendage between your legs. The catch: your intrepid engineer is moved and positioned by controlling both feet separately - ideally with a dual thumb-stick controller, although the keyboard is also supported. If this is done precisely and carefully, the rest of the body follows along in floppy skeletal motions, subject to gravity and momentum; if it isn't, gory dismemberment may ensue.

All game objects follow simulated 2D rigid-body dynamics: certain levels feature moving mechanisms, and repairing cables may trigger other actions. Your supply of repair liquid is limited, and if you run out, your only option is grisly suicide. Sever any of your precious body parts, and you fail the level (after ten failures you get the option to skip ahead, although your cheating ways will be proclaimed on the level select screen).

Besides the normal game mode, two others become available as you progress: clearing 10 levels unlocks "DRNK" mode, where the entire screen wobbles drunkenly (and the controls are less than reliable). Clearing 20 will enable "SCHSSE" mode, which adds even more woozy wobbling, a browner form of ejecta, bonus boozed-up swearing in German, and a different soundtrack (courtesy of Cell Necrosis, the author's 'electronic fith deathcore doom death brutal metal' band).
