I'm thinking about making an A1200 version of my Commodore Amiga 500 Best Demo Effects video:-

What effects jump to mind ?

Most the demos targeted for stock A1200 came out 93 to 95. So things like Nexus 7, Real, Full Moon etc.

The great feedback like tunnel in The Prey deserves a place.But yeah,93-95 seems to be the right timeframe.Will have to rewatch some demos from that era to come up with more suggestions.

Just do a compilation from the best Polka Brothers demos and intros. That will give a good idea of the best effects :) (probably not best in "damn this is impressive coding" but best in "damn, this is original and enjoyable to watch", which are two totally different things :))

Stock A1200 limits the period considerably though.

Roots / Roots v2.0 has a ton of them. :)

Also, while I agree that Real and Full Moon are great demos and also run _ok_ on vanilla a1200 one might argue that parts of them are "better" (or at least smoother) on accelerated machines. That said; your video = your selection criteria. :)
