*NOTE: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE go for this before you do anything else. I don't know if I stressed that enough in the guide. But it has to be known!*

This one is a bitch to do. I finally figured out how to do it, I'll list for what I know for sure needs to be done. What I think needs to be done. And the method I used.

Take note: This can be done on any difficulty. Confirmed by the devs. As well, it unlocked by me on easy.

This can also be done on any level in the game, provided you do everything listed below.

What needs to be done:

-You can't unlock the "made leaderboard" and, "made top of leaderboard" during the same end-level screen. As such I recommend getting this on the second level if starting from scratch. Make sure to die before finishing the first level. (You'll see why below).

-It has to be done on the online leaderboard. Switching leader boards to offline will not work.
-You need to take the Number 1 spot by overtaking a friend on your friend's list. (The developers confirmed this in an email to me!)

-After you get the high-score, you must die at some point before finishing that level. If you finish the level with a new high-score and didn't die at some point during the level after getting that high score this will not pop. After your score is uploaded you need to continue and finish that level.

What might need to be done.

- It may be necessary to get a higher-score then the score you got when it uploaded. (For example, dying near the end of the final boss, redoing it, than not getting a higher score)

Here's how I did.
First I got a higher score than my top score on a dummy account. (You'll probably want a friend who never played it). Next, I played through the game to the end. On the final boss I let the boss kill me after overtaking my dummy account's score. (I had tried 4-5 times before that, and Alt-F4ed at the level completion screen when it didn't pop so I wouldn't have to replay the game, than it came to me, the, "Made the leaderboard" achievement didn't pop on my dummy until I died on a level and continued that level.) I then beat the final boss with a higher-score than the one I posted to the leaderboards.

I *HIGHLY* suggest doing this before you do your first playthrough. This is possible to unlock on any level so you'll want to do it before you post a big score. I had an optimized run of 2.75 mill, and had to get a score of 2.77 mill on my dummy and literally a few hundred more points than that on my main account. If you get this out of the way early you won't have this problem.

Don't make the same mistake I did! I paid $6.99 twice for this game. Which is a total of $14. That's a significant amount of money for a windows 8 game. If you want to do this with a dummy use this guide here.
