Coolest Feature of any Amiga Game

What's the coolest feature you ever saw in an Amiga game? One of my favourites is rotating the gun in Turrican 2. An incredibly enjoyable thing to do!

Speedball 2's players' upgrade and transfer system was pretty cool.

Parallax graphical effect in most platform games, there is lot of examples but I can mention few that I like the most: Oscar intro screen, Lionheart lava level, Kid Chaos first world.
Marvin Marvelous Adventure - darkness in sewers levels and how it is change when You find candles, also how eyes starts to appear in darkness.
Disposable Hero - upgrade system based on finding blueprints and mixing different upgrades with ship capability.
Banshee - little soldiers and how they die in many wsys.
Super Stardust - tube sections between levels and underwater missions with gravity.

I always liked the animations in Archer Maclean's Pool when it was left idle for a little while. I also thought the individual mugshots and greetings of the characters in Foundation was a nice touch, even if poorly rendered... and gameplay-feature-wise, I liked some of the vehicles in Payback - for example being able to turn on the jingles when you're driving an ice cream van made it a lot of fun as a getaway vehicle, if slightly impractical.

Good question, and very interesting answers so far.

My choices:

-Gambling for level codes in Superfrog
-Reading the journal in Wings
-Control a single player in Player Manager

The dynamic soundscape in Chaos Engine. Bloody marvellous!
Oh and the animated/playable stuff with dot-matrix display in Slam Tilt.

K240:
- Tons of missiles (40-50) deployed on enemy asteroid, and me watching (from spy satelite), the fruits of my hard work. Its not most efficient way to destroy enemy, but most rewarding feel.

Brutal Paws of fury:
That humorous eastern music. It has ironic feel, and faster pace of the same music, when the fight starts, makes it even more funny.

Ruff 'n' Tumble:
Running with the flamethrower that destroys anything it touches.

I remembered only now

There's a particular moment in Prince Of Persia which is really cool

When you have to jump into the mirror to proceed with the game

Some good suggestions! Another thing I liked was how the flames came out of the engine on Stunt Car Racer.

The 3 player mode on Nitro was brilliant. The only problem with it, was if you played 3 players the remaining CPU player turned into a drunk driver and was no longer capable of operating a vehicle.

The bonus/secrets mechanics of Taito games. Parasol Stars, Rainbow Islands and New Zealand Story being the best examples.

It's probably more strange to most people, but I really like the mission selection feature in Cosmic Pirate.
