Stencyl: A Best Game Creation Software

Of course this is not a new fact, game creation and development require the knowledge of a programming language. Whether they’re amateur or professional, game developers must learn ActionScript, JAVA, C++ or some other complex programming language necessary for creating 2D or 3D games. But, fortunately, these days, there are various game creation software that don’t require coding.

In other hand, with all of the tools on the market in today’s gaming industry, you can really get into game development without any formal education. These are user-friendly and they include a straightforward drag and drop interface, an event system, graphics editor, a level editor, behaviors, special effects, and more toolsets that will make development much easier and it will also save both time and energy.

If you want to make an actual run at game development as a more serious career, you should probably pursue some more conventional means, but all the recent success stories really show that it’s entirely possible to succeed without them

One of the best site I stumble upon which required no coding skill and a user friendly interface with drop and drag features is Stencyl.

Stencyl: A Best Game Creation Software

Stencyl is your very own portable game studio that offers a splendid toolset and extensive platform support. It’s one of those “no coding required” game creators that provide the best drag-and-drop interface. The interface is inspired by the MIT Scratch project. The software developers have modified MIT’s project by adding new features. Dragging and dropping code blocks was never this easy.

The software program lets advanced game developers write their own code, custom classes and import libraries, giving them complete freedom to create their choice of games. Developers can also design scenes and build worlds using the software’s nifty Scene Designer. Besides a world editor, there’s an Actor editor tool that lets you create characters and NPCs, tweak their behaviors and appearances.

With Stencyl Basic, you can create Flash games for free and publish your games to their website. But for publishing games to Google Play, Windows, Mac and iOS, you will need to pay$199 per year.

Some of the top games created using Stencyl are Making Monkeys and Dangerous Dungeons (PC); Impossible Pixel and Zuki’s Quest (iPhone and Android). You can play them on Armor Games and NewGrounds to know the incredible capabilities of Stencyl’s toolset.

The software’s behavior library provides freedom to game developers to create actions of their choice from a list of basic and advanced game behaviors. Once game creation is complete, developers can test their game using the app’s amazing previewer.

There are other additional benefits in the pro version, but I would suggest trying out the free version first and then upgrading to the pro version if you are satisfied with the interface, preview and behavior sets.

In case you are not an absolute beginner and you already have some experience and some programming knowledge, the site might turn out to be the perfect choice for you. Its only setback may be the fact that the software is quite intimidating to learn for users who are complete beginners. This particular limitation together with the fact that the pro license is quite expensive and you really need it if you want to make a profit off of your games are the two main minuses of the program.

The site is also one of the most flexible and the most robust programs for creating games, and it also features lots of support, assets to purchase, its very own built-in IDE and also the ability to create various 2D and 3D games. If you are interested in creating 3D games or if you have some background in a programming language, maybe this will turn out to be the ideal tool for your needs

The program is free to use for public projects, and you also have the option of choosing a paid plan for unlimited private projects.


All the features listed in this software are the most powerful ones, and their complexity varies, so some of them are ideal for beginners, and others are perfect for pros. The program is a great balance for user-friendliness, flexibility and power, so check them out and stick with the one that you love the most and which best suits your needs and imagination for creating the coolest games.
