    Change the game settings to lower the difficulty to 1 and give yourself however many lives you think you may need. Just remember that you will have to run out of lives in order to record your score for another achievement. 30 to 50 should be plenty.

    Maybe somebody can verify if your score resets if you use a continue. I didn't try. If that's the case, then you can just run with the default lives and continue however many times you need.

    Confirmed by Eifel Reaper in the comments that continuing resets your score. He also suggested milking bosses for points by slowly chipping away at them rather than burning them out with bombs so you don't run into a situation where you complete the game without reaching 1.5 million.

    I hit 1,500,000 somewhere in level 7 and had died about 20 times. But I did this after Caravan and High Score modes so I had the first few levels pretty well figured out.

    FoogaI had 92 lives when I got the achievement. Think it was around level 4 or 5? It’s not like I beat the game in 8 lives. But I was merely mentioning it passively, wasn’t trying to brag or anything.

    I don’t really have anything to prove to you lol. Why would I lie about something like that? laugh Jeez.

    troyoyI believe you. With the above settings this game is easy as shit. I have never played this game at all and still have 88 lives left after hitting 1.5M. But I am pretty good at R-Type type games and this is very similar. What makes this easy or the trick is to get your guns built up and not die. When your guns suck you cant blast the shit out of everyone then you die a lot more often.

    EarthboundXAnother small tip, make sure you turn on the fastest rapid fire for the shoot button. That way you can just hold it, instead of having to mash it over and over. It's under the Button Settings.

    Really saves your thumb.

    Just beat this game and there's a video with the details for Caravan, High Score and Original Mode. The video is iin Portuguese but despite the language you guys can see how I went though each level.

    Caravan Mode: On first Stage try not dying and saving the Special Bombs for the boss. I used 1 bomb on the first Boss and got 285000 points at the end of it. Second stage is pretty much easy to get 15000 using the other bombs. Don't mind if you die, you'll get more special bombs to use.

    High Score Mode: Life is more important then Special Bombs so try to beat first stage without dying and using any bombs but if you you are struggling you can use it no problem. Second stage the only problem is that half space ship top and bottom shooting than moving together to the center. Try to go to the left of the screen before they start shooting and use the special. You'll need to start stage 3 to get 600000 points. Just a heads up be careful with the small slime balls in the beggining of the stage 3.

    General Tip: Don't stop pressing X cause as long as you keep shooting you are getting more points.
