Pygame is a Python-based game development kit that is known for it's simplicity. As Python is an interpreted language Pygame, it is never going to be as fast as writing code in C. This may not be a problem because much of the processor intensive work, such as rendering the graphics, is handled by SDL. Pygame is excellent for prototyping games or writing simple puzzle or arcade games.
