I'd like to make a 2d game and I like SDL but I don't think there is an SDL for monotouch. Whats the closest solution?

If the only thing you want is to draw sprites, you don't really need another library. It's very easy to draw a textured quad in OpenTK. Just wrap that in a function and go crazy. – Panda Pajama Jan 16 '13 at 6:34

I guess it is possible to use SDL with MonoTouch, however a more natural solution (IMHO) would be using MonoGame, since they will fit together good, without additional hassle.

Here's example of porting simple existing tutorial of 2D game for Windows to iOS using exactly MonoTouch and MonoGame.

I only see 3d examples. I haven't found a tutorial for 2d games – acidzombie24 Oct 17 '12 at 16:29
I've updated the answer. BTW, most modern 2D graphics is rendered in 3D mode actually, by just "ignoring" 3rd dimension. So it's really doesn't matter. – Petr Abdulin Oct 18 '12 at 1:48
