Fantastic drag-and-drop game creator with deep functionality if you need to go further

Pros: Drag and drop WYSIWYG interface, easy to get a basic game off the ground
In-built object behaviours such as 'run & jump', 'bounce off screen bounds', etc.
You can customise any of these behaviours or write your own from scratch

Cons: There were no in-built ways of capturing text input from the user when I last checked. I think it should be far easier to create a basic 'text prompt' to allow a user to type in their name or something.
Can be a bit confusing when you really get your teeth into customising a behaviour (no more-so than if you are doing textual coding, so this is hardly a bad point)

Overall: Didn't I literally just review it?
Why are you asking me this question?

Fun and addictive!

Pros: Stencyl is surprisingly fun and addictive. Simple management of game elements and a deeper back end of construction allows for a same exactly the way you'd expect

Cons: In desperate need of different programming language. Price is a little steep considering the competition offers their programs for free

Pros: Simple management of game elements accompanied by a deeper back end construction allows for a game exactly the way you'd expect.

Cons: Different programming language support are a must, and the price is a bit steep considering competition such as Unity and Unreal are offering their software for free.

Like one step below GameMaker, in the best way possible.

Pros: Stencyl is a great tool for super easy game design. There's no coding needed, so it's a great place to sketch out prototypes too.

Cons: The biggest issue is that it confined to mobile and flash. With flash being the nuisance that it is that could be troublesome.
