This is my favorite side-scrolling, ship flying, shooting aliens, rescuing humanoids game!

An equally great sequel with a few upgrades including the titular stargates that let you warp to other areas when you fly through them. Not to be confused with the excellent movie staring James Spader :)

Possibly one of the most unique video games ever made. There is nothing quite like it. 

Well, there is 'Baloon Fight' which is a cute and much more obscure game built on the same game engine but it doesn't have the riding an ostrich-like flying bird while jousting element to it.

While Defender is far more famous for being a hard core, tough game, Moon Patrol is almost equally tough given that you have to jump over and/or shoot through obstacles on the ground while shooting aliens flying in the air.
