I can't seem to get this one. Any tips?
Start a new game in Original mode, immediately use a continue and get the MAX power-up. Now all power-ups you collect are worth 10.000 points. The first score extend is at 35.000.000 points and if you 'time' it right you will be very close to that score after the stage 3 midboss (there is a dragonfly with a power-up directly after it). Now get your score into the 34.99x.xxx range by picking off single enemies and collect the power-up. It requires a little bit of timing (you can score far higher by that point) and a little bit of luck but that is how I got it.
