I'm confuse with Cocos2d-XNA in Cocos2d-x.org, Cocos2d-XNA in cocos2dxna.com and Monogame. What is the different between them.

Now, I looking for a Cocos2d XNA version which can cope with IAP in C# and Ads in C#.
So that I can developer a game with IAP or Ads in Windows phone platform.
(I need Cocos2d-xna because it support C#, that can be integrate to Windows phone IAP and Ads in C# code)
Pls advise.

Thank you.

Cocos2d-X : C++ version of cocos2d
cocos2d-phone : iphone version of cocos2d (objective-c)

MonoGame = open source runtime for XNA
Microsoft XNA = home base implementation of XNA (Windows 7 and below, Xbox 360, Windows Phone 7)

cocos2d-x.org = cocos2d-x maintainers and forums

cocos2dxna.com = Home for Cocos2D-XNA

We maintain Cocos2D-XNA, we operate cocos2dxna.com, and host the source at github.com/Cocos2DXNA/cocos2d-xna

Getting ads to work with C# is non-trivial, but it can work. We've had limited success recently. As for IAP, you will likely have more success since IAP is handled through web requests, unlike the Ads that use custom asset providers.
