    I need to develop a 2D Windows Store game using directx. Are there any tutorials that I can follow that give me a general idea of developing a 2D (not 3D) app? I'm really not familiar with directX and any help will be appreciated. Thank you

    To use DirectX, you will also have to use C++. Except you use SharpDX, then you can use C#.

    Since you are starting out and not familiar with DirectX, I would suggest that you look into the MonoGame Framework. It is the open source version of XNA. It's C# (not C++). The learning curve of DirectX is quite steep compared to MonoGame. You can get 2D game/app up and running much faster in MonoGame than using DirectX from scratch.
