viewing outside of the player

is there a way to view (gideros player) outside of the frame where we define our logical width and height? like the box2d collision example, where the box is created outside of the frame with the value -ve i would like the option to see it, as i want to make a platformer type game where the "stage" is bigger then the screen size, i hope i'am making myself clear
