PAL files contain colour palettes used in the game. The game needs these files because it works in colour mode, that can display at most 256 colours at one time. The palette tells the game which colours from true colour palette (24-bit) can be used. The game may use many palettes for different purposes, for example to display one image there may be needed different colours, than to display another image. This way also disk space can be saved, because each pixel of the image is stored as an 8-bit value (instead of 24-bit, like in regular images).
