Smash High Score

Anyone figured out any useful techniques on how to snag this?

I've got up to 500k on Cloud Temple 3, which puts me in the top 15 on that level. Unfortunately, only one person has 800k+ on that level and only two for the other Pro level.

So far, I've figured that you must avoid the mini-boss statues at the beginning and rack up your multiplier by nailing all the mini statues first. That way, when you hit the mini-boss statues, you'll be getting a lot more points. Also, you need to be super subtle in your turning. You can maintain a pretty wide drift if you attempt to straighten out your vehicle while in a drift. This will allow you to hit a lot more statues.

I can confirm a few things, though:

(1) You can't get this in co-op - I can only confirm this because a few people have over 800k in co-op but don't have the achievement.

(2) You can't retain your multiplier to hit the boss statue - I drifted on to the ramp and I lost my multiplier.

(3) The two pro levels are fairly equal - The guy who got over 800k on Cloud Temple 3 has around 900kish and that's similar to another guy on the very last level.

So, anyone out there got even closer? I have no clue where I'm going to get another 250-300k. I'm assuming multipliers come from hitting a lot of mini statues simultaneously.

I think my partner got this cheev in 2 player mode (she has 1000G too).

My best advice is to play the pro levels, and make a really slow drift.
If you can get into an oval-shape drift (ie: not perfectly straight round the ring) - this seems best.

Just be patient with one or two LONG drifts - sometimes you wont hit anything - but stick with it, as one big drift cranks up your multiplier score.

The level split into two areas is probably best - also try to grab the time bonus a few times from the middle of the second area.

If you do this with two players - get the helper to go through to the next area, so they can pick up the hourglasses for you, and wait lined up with the ramp to leave (or against a wall).

Get some good drifts on - I think the scores are a bit higher in the second area - so experiment with when to go to that area (based on time left on the clock).
