This is not really difficult to accomplish and can be done by using one blast. Technically, you can use all your boosts and blasts to do this, but one is more than enough.

You can start the game, not kill anything and continually allow the little orange enemies with the random floating movement to continue to spawn. After a little while, you can use one blast to completely destroy all of them and reach Wave 5. You have 3 blasts and 3 boosts to start with so you can repeat this if you don't get enough kills with the first blast. The reason to do this with one blast is because the orange enemies are the simplest and don't chase you. If you don't get it with the first blast, you will have to deal with the red arrows that follow you or worse and that will be a little more complicated to deal with.
