No, no, performance is not a priority, it's just that I would like it not be a drawback for pygame, or a reason for not to choose it.
The fact is that I prefer python to C, a lot (although I still write C code with the z88dk compiler for the Sinclair Spectrum), and would like to continue using python.

It's a simple remake of a Sinclair ZX Spectrum game called Maziacs that I wrote ¿10? years ago to learn SDL. And I was porting it to HTML5/JS with gamejs just to learn it.
I stopped porting it after a couple of days when I tested it on Android and iPad and run a 0.00001 fps :-( . After asking in gamejs's mailing list, I was told that nowadays, mobile (and tablet) browsers do not support 2D accelerated canvas :-(
I have a simple test online, IIRC:http://www.sromero.org/ext/code/maziacsjs/
And this is the (old) webpage of the SDL version:http://www.sromero.org/wiki/spectrum/proyectos/pcmaziacs
Thanks for answering!
