Is there a good tool for managing Microsoft SQL CE (SDF) files? For creating, altering them?

I once used SQL Server Management Studio 2008 to create them, but after I upgraded to 2012 this feature is absent and I don't want to install legacy software. Even managing with Management Studio 2008, I was unable to alter created tables and there were much more limitations. And now I need to know if is there a third-party management tool which manages SDF files, to create, alter and manage them. I know that Visual Studio might work but a standalone tool is prefered.
