*NOTE: This is copied and pasted from my Windows 8 guide with slight modifications. As far as I can tell this is all applicable to the Windows Phone version. If you find something that is different about this version (Like maybe dying after overtaking the score not being neccessary) feel free to let me know.*

*NOTE 2: 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.

I think the developers may have patched this achievement as I was able to unlock both leaderboard achievements on one end-level screen. It is now very easy to do the leaderboard achievements with two accounts that have never played the game before. Online leaderboards must be turned on. Difficulty does not matter, I did it on easy. I also made sure to have a WiFi connection as data would not upload my scores for some reason.

1.) Have main account score approximately 15,000 points and then let the game run by itself until you die. This should put you in first place on the leaderboard.

2.) Wait until you see your main account’s score on the second account’s leaderboards and score approximately 20,000 points and let the game run until you die. This should put the second account in first place and the main account in second place.

3.) Wait until you see the second account on the leaderboard. Continue the game and score approximately 25,000 points and die again. This should put the main account in first place on the leaderboard.

4.) Continue and finish the first level, both leaderboard achievements should pop on the post-level statistics.

5.) I was using a dummy account so I didn’t bother trying to get the achievements on that account, so I am not sure how to trade with another person. However, I believe if the second account passes the first account’s score on the second level and dies, then continues and finishes the second level, the achievements should pop.
