Games "MineAssemble is a tiny bootable Minecraft clone written partly in x86 assembly. I made it first and foremost because a university assignment required me to implement a game in assembly for a computer systems course. Because I had never implemented anything more complex than a 'Hello World' bootloader before, I decided I wanted to learn about writing my own kernel code at the same time. Note that the goal of this project was not to write highly efficient hand-optimized assembly code, but rather to have fun and write code that balances readability and speed. This is primarily accomplished by proper commenting and consistent code structuring." Just cool.

Spoken like someone who doesn't get Minecraft. The "crappy" graphics are a feature, not a bug. It's designed to be a block game, therefore the tiles are meant to be blocky. If you don't like the default texture it's a snap to change textures and there are a lot of great, photorealistic ones out there.
