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.

Obligatory mention of MenuetOS, the complete graphical operating system written entirely in Assembly:

"I was tired of people saying nothing big can be written in Assembly, so I wrote an operating system." It blows my mine every time I see it. ;)
