"This amazingly powerful and versatile utility allows you to create BASIC programmes involving high speed sprites. Two programme are contained within this package, the sprite definer program to create and customise sprites, and a sprite manipulation programme for use with your own basic programmes to control sprites with simple keywords."
Panda Sprites enabled rapid production of games for anybody who could write in BASIC. It was advertised as a Game Development Tool and was one of the first of its type. Several games were published using this system, and it allowed games to be written more quickly, which was a great bonus. Why Panda? It came from Philip and Andrew’s initials 'P and A'.
