    "If I had to recommend a single perma death game to play for the iPhone, it would be Out There: Omega Edition. This is an excellent space exploration game where you have to survive, collect oxygen and keep your ship in working order. I have had a blast playing it I would encourage anyone who is looking for a fun challenge to download this game."

    "Wayward Souls is a fun RPG game that reminds me of classic games I used to play. It is not a perma death game as I expected, but it is a fun classic game similar to games like Secret of Mana and Spelunky. Once you beat a level, you obtain skills that will help you advance further to the next level, which is fun in itself."

    "I'd recommend this if you like Turn based style strategy role playing games. It nostalgically reminds me of older Final fantasy games and other similar rpgs. The only difference is this game seems to have a mobile twist to it."

    "I didn't like the game at all. I found the graphics to be awful throughout. I found the game play itself quite boring. It's not one I could play and lose myself in. I uninstalled it just as quickly as I installed it to be honest. I think it could be better. They do make updates for the game and try quickly to fix issues within the game itself but it's not enough for me to continue to want to play."

    "Not sure how much of a good perma death game Heroes of Loot is, but if you're into searching dungeons while fighting enemies off, this may be for you. Many levels of challenge where you collect loot in this 2d RPG. May be worth the look."
