You'll most likely need to complete at least 2 full stages and a part of the 3rd to get this unless you're very good at maximizing your score. By that, I mean the way you get more points for shooting enemies multiple times, the way you can get bonus items and a temporary score multiplier by killing enemies up close, etc.

First of all, I recommend using the 3rd character (Lulu) due to her spread shot. She has the worst stats as far as Attack and Defense go, but none of those stats mean all that much. Ultimately, you just need to use someone you're comfortable with, but I chose her.

Second, you're going to want to shoot various parts of the environment (lampposts, cars, trees, etc.) as they all help you with the points you need.

Third, kill enemies up close whenever you can without risking getting shot. You often get valuable weapon powerups, health, and numerous high point-value items this way. Often, the best time to do this is when they're rolling in near you in small groups. Otherwise, keep your distance and shoot them as much as possible, like the tollbooth scene in The Godfather.

Fourth, keep an eye out for the soldiers running by waving a flag. If you touch them, they'll take off their helmet, and there's a 50-50 chance they'll be a blonde woman who thanks you, or a skeleton that tells you to go to hell. If you get the skeleton, just run away as they self-destruct. If you get the blonde woman, let her run offscreen and you'll get 20K. Not much, but it helps.

Fifth, the vehicles can be great for points (about 60K) if you manage to get them through the boss battle(s). They take a bit of skill to use, they all have different charge attacks, and they obviously can't evade bullets as easily as you can on your own. On that note, if you find yourself surrounded in your vehicle or you see a bullet about to hit it, jump out real quick and the vehicle won't be harmed. Additionally, you have a brief period of invincibility when you jump back in. It's worth getting used to the vehicles because they can make a significant difference in the boss battles and the various sticky situations during the levels. You essentially need to treat the vehicles as extensions of your character.

Sixth and final point is just to familiarize yourself with the levels in original mode (on level 1 difficulty) first. Learn the enemy attacks and spawn order as much as you can, and it'll help you immensely once you start trying to tackle this high score.

Good luck! toast
