How many cracktros/trainers came with built-in mini-games?

I can only think of two. There's Space Invaders found in Melon's Sooty and Sweep trainer and Tetris in... the name of the game escapes me. Are there any more?

I love the way Melon skipped the usual menu system here, integrating the options into an arcade game instead.

Wow, that is cool... never seen that before.

I imagine it gets a little frustrating though if playing the game multiple times.

Thanks for the Pacman suggestion. That one totally passed me by so I'll check it out soon and make a video if someone hasn't already beaten me to it.

Oddly I've never seen this Space Invaders trainer in a video covering Sooty and Sweep so people are either using a different version or think nothing of editing it out.

You can just shoot in between the UFOs to hit those trainer options to get started faster, but I wanted to see what would happen if I cleared the screen of enemies first. Nothing it turns out.

Otherwise, you can just make sure you get killed straightaway to play the game without the trainer.
