Is there a mac version of dwarf fortress with better graphics?

The top says it all.

well... there isn't one with better graphics, but there is an official mac port of it, the same developer ported it. And heck, maybe he did decide to spiff up the graphics for mac users

I really enjoyed the crisp ClearType graphics in the Windows version. I can't begin to describe how indefinitely great it would be to have both that AND ColorSync enabled graphics on the Mac! Maybe put in some Core Animation to handle the tens of dozens of characters that change every second.

Angband (derived from Moria) isn't quite the same thing, but it looks like a similar genre--and it does have an option then enables better graphics. Better than ASCII anyway
