HAM-8 mode (Or at least I think that's what it was called)

Much like the A500 had HAM mode for 4096 colours on the screen the A1200 had HAM-8

Virtually useless for anything other than DPaint V and other apps of the same ilk, but great for showing off your Amiga with.

There was an A500 game that actually used HAM mode, I can't remember what it's called now, but it was just a series of pictures that you clicked on to progress the story, crap, but great for showing off to your ST owning mates back in the day
