Pecaminosa is a perfect little game to spend a weekend with. It won’t challenge you, it doesn’t last long, and the atmosphere is enough to warrant a look from any noir fan. I can’t help but feel like you might be better off playing it on steam, but you’d still have pages of exhausting dialogue to sit through. I suppose that’s all really subjective, but Pecaminosa misses the mark more than it hits for my money.

A pixel art film-noir RPG sounds like a golden idea but Pecaminosa’s execution leaves a lot to be desired. The pacing is uneven and the quasi-fantasy parts are out of nowhere but the boss fights are fun and have 8 & 16-bit era vibes.

Pecaminosa is a noir-style game with a story that captures from beginning to end despite some twists and turns, mixing numerous genres such as RPG, twin stick shooter or narrative novel. The truth is, it fails to stand out in any of them, leaving a rather unfortunate finish, this followed by a soundtrack of the lot and a technical section that is conspicuous by its absence. It makes me unable to recommend this title, which with a stronger result would be a memorable title.

8 / 10.0

Pecaminosa - A Pixel Noir Game brings an enticing adventure shrouded in various detective movie clichés. The ambiance and soundtrack involve you in an inexplicable way in the small world of this dark and corrupt city, and the gameplay, while not the most interesting and elaborate, doesn't compromise fun and immersion. The dialogues are the icing on the cake of a work that delivers such interesting story and characters that make you want to explore every dimly lit alley in the city.
