Oh man, a little late on the draw here, but I also used Python + Pygame. I shortcut as much as I could in making my game "engine" - no textures, and rectangle everything. I also work with SDL2/C++, but I only do that when I want to spend 96% of my time confused and frustrated, trying to debug segmentation faults :-D
