Is there a way to set the level display size to be smaller then the entire canvas?

I was thinking I want to have say the bottom 100px of the canvas for buttons and status updates in my game so there are not buttons overlaying the game blocking the game play. I the BioLab game, my thumbs constantly blocked game play, and I wanted to avoid that.

This also may look really crappy as well and shrink the game too much, but I wanted to try it out.

The easy solution is to let the level draw over the entire canvas.
Then draw a GUI on top that covers up part of your level as you want.
This should work for most situations.
Especially if you're not having any performance issues.

My concern is that if a blank out the lower 100px, that gameplay may get blocked out by that overlay . I don't want someone to get lost under the overlay

Code in limits so that entities etc can't go above/below your GUI. I often use this method instead of using the collision map.
