You can find lots of technically impressive effects on

Most effects are clever programming, as opposed to actually pushing any intended limits or functionality of the hardware.

The C64 with its VIC was a lot more susceptible to hardware tricks, and the only trick for the Amiga that I can think of right off the bat is the "$102 trick" which is horizontal shrinking of the bitmap done by changing the fine scroll value rapidly across the scanline. If you've ever played Brian the Lion you will see a good example of this effect in the valved background graphics in some places.
