Definitely all Python. Some of it "cleaner" than others. I've been working
on this for awhile now and I've learned a lot since I started. I've set it
up so the 'Binary Installers' still run from full source code.
When writing a game like this in Python, performance is always a concern.
SolarWolf ends up being very careful with the graphics with what is cleared,
drawn, and updated. When you get down to it, drawing all the graphics still
takes a large percentage of the runtime. It's still pretty easy to make a
Python game that runs too slow.
There's a few other great looking Python games that have gotten pretty mature.
