I'm going to code a bit after I've got a preliminary version of all
the elements (postsack & basket, penguin, iglu, icefloat etc) and
seen what you've been upto :-).

For what kind of death?   Here are a couple of alternatives...
- penguin breaks apart like blocks
- penguin falls on his/her face or back
- penguin vanishes in a puff of smoke or fire
- the penguin head shoots up and blood spurts up from the neck stump
  while the body convulses wildly around
- penguin gets white mini-wings and flies up to heaven
- penguin freezes (gets a block of ice around itself)

Mine's a bit slow too...  I'll try to get a first version of ice-float
today and maybe some improvements to the polar bear too.

Could you do interim release in the meanwhile?
