I'd say that Flashback is the best, but Ruff 'n' Tumble, Lionheart, and Benefactor are also great.

It's a platformer with a gun. Two of the levels happen to be horizontal shoot-em-ups, but the main game is a platformer. A run 'n' gun would be something more like Astro Marine Corps or Gunstar Heroes, which put far more emphasis on shooting than they do on level structure.
