    So what's the recommended path for 2D game development for WP8?

    Microsoft is scheduled to drop support for XNA next year I believe.

    Then there's MonoGame which is expensive (Xamarin) unless you know you're going to make money rather than starting out.
    32K of IL code restriction seems like a joke. They should change the K into an M.

    You can always try out YoYo GameMaker Studios:

    You also have Construct2, Marmalade, Cocos2d-X, Unity3D (now have a 2D engine for 2D games).
    Construct2 is a HTML5
    Marmalade and Cocos2d-X are C++ or Javascript or Lua
    Unity3D is C# and Javascript

    Some of those engines support more programming languages that the ones stated above.

    regards

    GameMaker can be ported to most platforms you just got to learn the GameMaker language and pay a bit more.
