All million credits do not need to be in your possession at once. This is cumulative. You can check your progress in the pause menu, under achievements. If you work thorough the game, collecting every credit you can, you will be somewhere around 300,000 when you finish (not replaying any levels). You can also replay any level to collect more credits.

Some general tips: it helps significantly to have a second player to activate switches simultaneously, which nets you far more credits. There will also be many more enemies to fight. If you don't have a second player you can just plug in another controller and do it yourself. Kill all the enemies! Many times you get a large credit bonus when all the enemies in an area are dead. Try activating switches more than once. Sometimes multiple attempts give you a credit bonus as well.

One of the best levels is the second Jungle Approach zone (once you have the action parts). You can earn over 100,000 per play-through if you are thorough. Be sure to hit all the breakable plants. There are a few hard to reach ones in this zone but they offer multiple gold credits. The cave full of caterpillars is the source of a lot of credits in this zone (be sure to hit the well before you enter or most of the caterpillars will not spawn). Also you can repeatedly enter the cave and exit in order to re-spawn groups of enemies. This will allow you to collect the bonus for killing them all numerous times. There are two groups in particular that drop large bonuses when defeated. The group near the exit and the small group that appears when you use your nano arm on the switch in the top right corner of the zone.

Overall this achievement should not take more than an hour of solid playing after you complete the game.

Credit goes to Beuzer0: When you start a new game you retain all of your earned credits. So it is possible to do this in more than one play-through. Thanks for the update!
