Any game takes time and work to accomplish. As such I recommend downloading the trials of these various software programs and using the one that you like the most.

There is also PyGame and XNA as other free choices if you are more interested in the programming aspects of things.

[opinion]At this point I would not recommend C++ (Although other people might). C++ just has too many pitfalls to be used by a beginner and really it shouldn't be used unless there are no other options. I say this as someone who has used C++ for many years..[/opinion]

I agree with everyone else, learning C++ as your first langauge is hard; it's a very powerful language, but can be very hard to use. I'm a 3rd year university student that worked as a programmer before university and I still occasionally get stumped by some obscure 'feature' of C++. If i was in your position i would go with pygame, its written in python which I find is the simplest and nicest language to program in.

Work your way through this:

http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html

When you begin to understand most of its concepts (loops, functions, lists/dicts, etc.) you can probably take a look into pyGame. I noticed that I was ready for pyGame when I began to fully understand loops and think about how they could be used in a game.
