Xcode is not available for Windows but there are plenty of alternatives that runs on Windows with similar functionality. The best Windows alternative is Sublime Text.

Most users think IntelliJ IDEA is a great alternative to Xcode.
Code::Blocks is a free C++ IDE built to meet the most demanding needs of its users. It is designed to be very extensible and fully configurable. An IDE with all the features a developer need, having a consistent look, feel and operation across platforms.
This alternative is disputed. Code::Blocks is still a legitimate alternative to Xcode, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

Lazarus vs Xcode opinions
pros, cons and recent comments
You can develop very universal programs and games with graphical user interface, and also implement sound support with UOS!
Of course you have to watch out for licenses yourself!
Unfortunately UOS is not absolutely stable so far, but it can be improved. The compiled program is quite universally usable under Linux! I have been able to develop many a small and medium game with it, but so far for us privately!
