If you're interested in one of those options and have a specific problem, we can help you with that. It seems like people don't like your question, although I can't really see why. – ashes999 Feb 23 '12 at 3:23
What is it about them that doesn't work for you? Is it just a problem with Windows XP? You can find a long list of alternatives here: – chaosTechnician Feb 23 '12 at 17:37

Game Maker should work on XP, not sure why it isn't.

There aren't very many 'easy' game creation programs out there. If you don't mind doing some hard work I would recommend XNA. It's REAL programming, none of that drag&drop kiddies stuff. ;)
