A small 3d space shooting game completely developed in x86 assembly language by one man. It had a text mode game menu, elite-like hi-res in-game graphics, mostly shaded in green models realistically lightened by the sun. A dozen of various missions to complete. In a text file with this game author makes boast of a super-duper optimized alorithm to draw sunlit planets.

Sounds kind of like Line Wars to me (not Line Wars II, though I guess it could be as well)

I remember playing that on a 5150 with CGA back in the day, and it was fantastic. I can't find a google reference to anything but Line Wars II, however.. at least one with any screen shots.

Perfect hit, this is it! As for the first Line Wars, filewatcher does the job:
