What is an SPRITE file?
Graphics file used by Scratch, an educational program used for developing creative programming skills; saves a two-dimensional image as well as animation settings for the image; commonly used for characters and game objects.
SPRITE files can also be used by Scratch variants such as BYOB (Build Your Own Blocks).
NOTE: The release of Scratch 2.0 introduced the .SPRITE2 file, which replaced the SPRITE file.

SuperTux Sprite File
2.5 | 13 Votes
Sprite referenced by SuperTux, a sidescroller video game similar to Super Mario Bros; formatted as a text file and contains a set of actions for a character, including references to images files that make up the sprite.
Sprites are used to display characters and their associated animations. Actions within the sprite file are run when the user enters input (such as walking forward or turning right) or when certain events happen during gameplay (such as the player getting hit by computer character). By using sprites, simple bitmap images can be used to perform all the animations within the game.
