WorthPlaying: "It's usually bad if you die in video games because it means you screwed up and have to go back to the last checkpoint. Some games have gone out of their way to minimize death. Prince of Persia from 2008 saved players saved and restored them to the last safe position. Other games — like Demon's Souls, Shiren the Wanderer or Dead Rising — treat death as a new beginning. You have to restart, often from the beginning of a level, but you do so with newly gained knowledge and, occasionally, new abilities. Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman is very much one of the latter games, but it's also a spin-off of the Disgaea franchise and incorporates a lot of that series' mechanics. The combination of roguelike gameplay and Disgaea mechanics makes Unlosing Ranger a surprisingly addictive and exciting game, so you won't mind dying from time to time."
