Change the lives to 4 in the game settings to make this easier. You should keep in mind some details about type 1:

With this in mind, type 1 seems the hardest due the very shallow spread of bullets, but with good option placement you can easily cover half of the screen. To further improve the chances of unlocking this, you should learn enemy placements and bullet patterns. Remember also that the option can be moved manually.
