Just delete them. At least the main packages you installed.
One of the beauties of a Mac is that uninstalling is as easy
as deleting the application bundle. Don't try to tidy up all
the libraries by hand however because MacOS comes with
its own version of Python and you might break something
that relies on it!

Of course if you don;t remembder what you installed or where
then theres not too much tyou can do except do a trawl with
find (or maybe with finder/sherlock) to locate the most recently
installed files and if they look likely delete those...

On a Mac install the latest MacPython package.
Then install the pyGamer versions that correspond.
Don;t install too many things at once, make sure it
all works first!
