The Chess variants site has introduced tags recently and you can find some games with the tag Piece:Amazon. As of the day of writing this answer, the tagging is not yet comprehensive and a lot of games featuring the Amazon are still missed by this but I expect things to improve over time.
In addition, there is a list of games with the Amazon in the Piececlopedia entry Amazon on the same site.
