Welcome to Android Central! They're most likely images that the game cached in a directory related to the game. The developer is supposed to know enough to add a file called ".nomedia" to that directory, which instructs the system to ignore that directory when searching for images to add to the gallery database. You can use a file manager app to create a blank file title ".nomedia" to that directory, if you can locate it.
