The Death World is a realm to which Tommy goes when he dies in the game.
When Tommy's health meter goes empty, he will die and be drawn into the land of death. This is called the Death Walk. In the center of the Death World is Tommy's body, slowly being pulled down a path of light. toward the ground. Tommy can shoot Wraiths and steal the energy trapped inside them. Tommy only has until his body is pulled into the earth to replenish both his Life Meter and Spirit Gauge, as much as he can.
