There's an easy, albeit tedious way to get this achievement. Start a new game and give yourself 5 lives and 5 continues. Once you get to level 2-1, play through the level normally and get all the hostages. Before you reach the final screen of the level, save. Normally, you'd see the chopper for the first time and meet some extra enemies. You have to stop just before you get to da choppa and start throwing stars. You will start to hit the enemies off screen (look at your score) and they will keep on respawning! Keep throwing stars (turn on rapid fire) and you'll get a bunch of points. Keep doing this til the timer runs out. If you don't get this to work, remember that the enemies have to be off screen! Just inch your way to the exit, throwing shurikens and stop once you see the score going up.

You'll die and get to restart the level. Rinse and repeat the method. You have 25 lives, but you don't have to use all of them to get the achievement.

I found this to be the least frustrating way of getting this achievement. It will save you the trouble of going through the entire game a second time if you played through it once already.

Plus, you can set the difficulty to hardest and get the 300k on your way to the chopper for that achievement.
