Applet Python won't Run

Hi I have this code:
Code:
#RandomWordGame.py
# Computer picks a random word, and the user has to guess it.
#Script by Xarver
import random

letterwords3 = ("pie", "cat", "dog", "boy", "pop", "man", "fun")
letterwords4 = ("cake", "girl", "poop", "race", "nice", "cool", "game")
letterwords5 = ("sweet", "funny", "drool", "rocks")

print """\
Welcome to the Random Word Game!!!
Try to guess the random word in 6 tries or less!
\tEnter 1 to play!
\tEnter q to quit.
\t(Enter cheater to list all the words!!!)\n"""
while True:
	entry = raw_input("Your Choice: ")
	entry = entry
	if (entry == "cheater"):
		print letterwords3
		print letterwords4
		print letterwords5
	elif (entry == "q"):
		break;
	elif (entry == "1"):
		enter = int(raw_input("Enter 1 for 3letter game, 2 for 4lettergame, and 3 for 5letter game: "))
		if (enter == 1):
			word = random.choice(letterwords3)
		elif (enter == 2):
			word = random.choice(letterwords4)
		elif (enter == 3):
			word = random.choice(letterwords5)
		else:
			break;
		guess = ""
		tries = 0
		while (guess != word):
			guess = raw_input("Try to guess the word: ")
			tries += 1
			if (tries > 5):
				print "Sorry, you lost!"
				break;
			if (guess != word):
				print "Nope!"
			else:
				print "Congrats! You won the game! :)"
	else:
		print "Invalid Entry!!!\n"
I right click the RandomWordGame.py and run with Build Applet and get RandomWordGame.app
I double-click the .app file and nothing happens.
I'm running MacOSX 10.4 on an old iMac... What's wrong?

There's nothing wrong. You just don't see anything because this is a console script, but an .app bundle should contain a GUI application if you want to see and interact with your program.

Launch your script from within Terminal (python myfile.py) and it should work.
