Bitmap Font class

Here’s a class for rendering bitmap fonts in Codea and a couple of nostalgic fonts.

The fun thing about this class is that fonts don’t need to be static. The render themselves through a callback which can draw the pixels or spawn particles or whatever… It can make for some cool effects.

Very nice. I’m thinking I should add this to my missile command variant — it’s much more 8-bit.

EDIT: it’s a bit out of date, so I should update it.
