Terminology

In gaming terms, a life is an indicator of how many turns you have controlling your on-screen character, usually referring to non-vehicles and non-weapons. In arcade machines, players are allocated a set number of Lives; each time the character dies, a life is removed. When there are no more lives to remove, the game ends unless the player has an available continue.
