    Thumbs up "1 up" in videogames

    I have some questions about some videogames I've played.

    When I get 1 life, in the sreen says: "1 up",

    Would you please explain:
    the function of "up"?
    why does it say "1 up"?

    Thanks in advance

    Improvement of one, but you haven't reached the maximum. If it's a competitive game you could be one in front.
