Gamemaker Lite is free. It has the capabilities to make a game similar to Astroids. However, it won't make games in a format that AG will publish, I'm afriad.

You could try webs. It isn't terrible, and it'll get you some basic stuff for websites. It's also pretty popular.

You could try Stencyl if you're trying to make games. The graphics are something that you may be able to deal with later.

Your best bet is to visit the sites yourself. Webs is an online program, and I'm not sure about Stencyl.

LOVE, which is a framework that uses LUA, is a great option for making games. It's a very powerful tool, though you will need to learn some programming to use it. There's also some spectacular YouTube tutorials by a user named 'Goature' on creating games in LOVE, it's step-by-step and easy to follow, but even those assume you have knowledge of LUA or at least knowledge of similar programming languages and the concepts involved. I know (a little) Java and C++, and was able to hop right into LOVE with very little knowledge of LUA.
