Pygame not working

I'm trying to run a pygame project but it isn't running at all. I've waited at least five minutes.
The console has this message and the window just says "run your repl to see output", then refreshes to a black screen and shows it again, despite the run button saying stop indicating that the program is running.

this is running perfectly on my pc the problem is 1. it might be your pc is very very slow.2. You are pressing run multiple times.
Now the solutions of this problems are

  1. if u have a slow pc
    S. The solution is to downgrade the version of the os if u are in mac pls upgrade/downgrade depends on the os u have to macos catalina and if u have windows 10/8 downgrade to windows 7 and if u are on windows 7 it might work if u upgrade to windows 10 psitively not on(Windows 8)
  2. The second problem was u are pressing run multiple times rather press it only one time and wait for the time it takes repl.it to process the whole code as python is a little slow language but ur code is also small zt the same time so just try it
  3. And I just remembered another issue sometimes due to the new update repl.it breaks sometimes
    So what u can do is start using IDEs like VSCode/Pycharm
    Ok theese solutions ma solve your problem.

I don't think downgrading his OS is gonna fix it, because Replit is ran online.
