icon Proposed visual aids to help show that puffs freeze things (+2)  
We've noticed over the past few months that it's easy to forget that puffs can make ice over water whenever they die (whether by getting pushed into a monster, or into another puff, or an obstacle).

Some proposed visual changes that might make this a bit more discoverable or easy to remember:

- Make fluff and puffs light blue, instead of white, suggesting an "ice color"

- Make the dying animation include some sort of snowflake or "frost" animation, to more directly imply freezing taking place on that square.

Of course, further discussion is invited and appreciated.

Out of those two, I'd think the "freezy" death animation would be much clearer. I don't feel like the color being blue would have told me "it freezes things" any more than it being white does. I mean, mud, brains, and water skippers are all red but they don't melt things.
