What do you like best?

I love how simple and understandable Stencyl is. This program is very simple to learn and allows for quick game productions. I also love how many platforms Stencyl can be used on. There is also so much potential for Stencyl to grow and expand. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Stencyl is limited at this time. You can create fun, simple games with it, however, you won't be building detailed 3D models with it. It has a lot of room for growth, so I think that it's possible that someday you will be able to create more complex games. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This program is super simple and really useful when designing quick games, trying out new ideas, and creating sample projects. I definitely recommend! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Stencyl gives me a great way to create quick and simple games and ideas for my clients. I can play around with different ideas using Stencyl and also create sample games to show clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Stencil is a drag and drop game maker. This came in handy for a person like me who knows a little coding but not enough to create a game on my own. With Stencyl, it made it possible. The U.I. is pretty much self-explanatory whereas you pretty much connect your actors (objects) to behaviors. I will be using this program again soon starting my second game using Stencyl. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is free to publish your game to the web as in just being a windows game, but f you want to publish it to android, like I do, it will cost you $200. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically not needing to hire a programmer to develop the games for me. Since it is drag and drop, I am able to do it myself with less time and money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Minimal experience and minimal skill. still able to make a fun, addicting game. I am not a coder. This software works great for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Wanted to make a game but didn't have the technical skill to write one from scratch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
