As the title suggests and I am just starting out with Mono and am looking for a simple game example to get me started. Can you suggest anything?
It depends on which game development framework you want to use.
For MonoGame, there is a lot of samples from Dominique Louis:https://github.com/CartBlanche/MonoGame-Samples
In monodroid-samples, which is for demonstrating Android framework and OpenTK support, there are some sample games, namely "Snake" and "Jetboy":https://github.com/xamarin/monodroid-samples
(I just picked up two repos, but others may have other set of samples!)
