Hm, looks nice, I like the smooth movement.
One thing though: On my PC, the points seem to brighten when you move smoothly. I'm guessing it's because they don't hit the pixels perfectly.
Maybe the pointstyle helps here? Or else you could force positions of the camera to be integers (math.floor). Then you don't have pixel-positions between pixels.

The points brighten as well, I fixed it by changing the font.
Here is the fixed version:

Much better!

I'm still noticing on thing, though: When you're moving left, the square moves almost all of the way, but stops one pixel in front of its destination, propably because the movement gets so slow that it covers less than a pixel per frame. Then, after about half a second, it jumps to the final position. Because there's a dot there, it will first not cover the dot, then when it jumps, it covers it, making the jump very obvious.
I'm nitpicking here, I know. But these minor things distract from the otherwise really good-looking movement...

I know that, and it's annoying as hell.

Anyways, I made an update.
I'm not giving things away, try for yourself!
By the way, don't peek inside the .love file. No apparent reason.
I cannot post the .love file on this post, so I just updated the thread.
