Is there any way to print a character at a larger size? For example if you want to use one of the glyphs in a level but you need to make it 4x bigger?

It's a little roundabout, but you can copy the text into sprite memory and then use sspr():

function spritify(letter)
 cls()
 print(letter,0,0,7)
 for i=0,4 do
  memcpy(i*64,0x6000+i*64,3)
 end
end
function _draw()
 local letters="abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
 local i=(flr(time())%#letters)+1
 spritify(sub(letters,i,i))
 cls()
 local width=16*(2+cos(time()))
 local height=16*(2+sin(time()))
 sspr(0,0,3,5,64-width/2,64-height/2,width,height)
end

thanks @ianh that's exactly what I was trying to do. Will give it a shot.

edit: wow that's a wild effect haha
