If it's the vertical resolution that's the problem then there's no law
saying that the cells in life have to be squares. Make them rectangles
by only making them 4 scan lines high instead of 8, then you'll have
40x40 display.

If it's the horizontal resolution that's the problem then I don't know what
can be done about it.
