You can find lots of technically impressive effects on http://ada.untergrund.net/

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.
