I had somewhat of a hard time with this one achievement so to help you struggle less, I decided to write this guide.

427,469 is the highest possible score that you can get. As per others this can be done in Arcade or Home mode, but I found that Home mode on Easy difficulty was the best way to get this done.

Unlike the 360 version, you can not save all the time; however, if you do die, exit right away and Load your save again. If using the controller, push start and then exit. If the keyboard or touch screen, I believe pushing ESC will do the trick. Now once you load your save, you will get your 5 lives back, meaning back to the checkpoint as the game autosaves after ever check point. You will need to have a perfect runthrough in order to be able to get the maximum points.

During the elevator sequence, you must EXIT on the 3rd and 9th floors twice each as it appears 4 times. Now if you aren't sure how many floors there are, very simply pass the 3 and if you tend to die, exit and re-load so that you know exactly when to exit the elevator.

At the beginning of the Dragon's Lair, you need to have exactly 288,494 points. If you do not, which happened to me a few times, you must restart the game. (Thankfully the game is only 15 minutes long, so not a big deal if you mess up a few times).

During the battle with the dragon, you must do all the right moves EXCEPT the last move which is an attack by pushing A. So, all moves and your last move should be UP (right before the final strike) and let the dragon kill you. Do this a total of 4 times as every progress that you make does add up to your final score. When you have 1 life left, you want to successfully KILL the dragon which should net you exactly 427,469 points and get you the achievement during the credits at the end.

Good luck and any questions, let me know!
