A few 90s ones (from my student union days):

GTI Club - A brilliant arcade racer with nimble handling, hidden shortcuts and handbrake turns. We used to get quite competitive at this - loved it.

Radikal Bikers - Basically a Crazy Taxi rip off but possibly a bit easier and very fun.

Title Fight - Sega's fantastic arcade boxing game.

I remember really loving the Castlevania arcade game that was under a different name. Never actually played it myself at the arcade, and only saw it once. But it looked really impressive.

Got to play it in Mame32 decades later, and I completely suck at it. Which is odd as I'm really good at the rest of the 2D Castlevania's.

Haunted Castle? I own the PS4 version, and it sucks. It's very clunky and still even in comparison to the early NES Castlevania's - I keep attempting to learn to play it properly because I usually love all things Castlevania, but even I can't be bothered to persevere with this one.

Agreed. Though the person I watched play it, got pretty damn far in it. I dunno how that's even possible, as it's hard as hell.

On the 1cc Superplay that came with the PS2 Haunted Castle they only used the stopwatch item. It freezes all the bosses even Dracula himself.

I got to level 3 on 1cc but those 3 ghost girls sub bosses finish me off all the time. The stopwatch diesn’t work on the ghost girls, but the guy on the replay beats them easy. There was also safe spots such as the bats on level 1 just before Medusa.
