Stage 1 – Original Mode.
Your main aim here is to achieve 300k points and select yes to uploading your score to the leaderboards.
To make things slightly easier, select Original Mode with the options button, press X to skip the controls, press the touchpad to bring up the menu, select Game Settings, Change the lives from 3 to 6 and reduce the Extend points from 30k to 10k, this means you have more lives and will gain a new life at 10k points. In the button settings, you can change the button configurations and even turn Rapid Fire on at different speeds if required. It is recommended to set the shoot button to R1 instead of X and L1 for Jump/Crouch. Also, use the “Create Interrupt Save Data” option to your advantage. When you feel like you are making good progress, press the touchpad and select this option to create a save state. If you fail afterwards, press the touchpad, select “Back to title screen” then press Options on Original Mode to carry on from the save state. However, uploading a score to the leaderboard will delete the save state, so only do this once you have at least 300k points.
Stage 2 – Hi Score Mode.
Now that you are used to the game, you should have no problems achieving at least 10k points in order to upload to the leaderboards. Select Hi Score Mode, earn at least 10k points and say yes to uploading score. The only difference is that you only have 3 lives and cannot change them in the menu, or have rapid fire on, like in Original Mode.
Score 300,000 points
The score won 300,000 points.
The hardest trophy in the game. To make it easier, see Stage 1 about changing the settings and using a save state.
After each stage, you get a minigame where you have 1 chance to shoot the coin out of the sky. Press shoot just before it is directly above you to hit it. Shooting it will give you a x2 score bonus of the stage you are on, e.g. Stage 4 will give 8000 points. Each stage gets harder and faster to hit the coin, by Stage 5 will you need to shoot just after the coin starts moving. If you miss the coin you still get the points for the stage you are on. From Stage 10 the points are capped at 10k, so 20k if you hit the coin.
Try and get under the cowboys and shoot upwards, this kills them easier than shooting diagonal from the other side of the train.
Avoid obstacles and bullets and do not crash into the train. You cannot jump over obstacles, and bear in mind even after shooting the cowboys, their horse can still hit you. Do not relax thinking the stage is about to end once you have shot all the cowboys, as sometimes even more will appear. Allowing 3 cowboys to jump onto the train will also cause you to lose a life.
When there are cowboys on the train you have to run alongside it and press jump to board the train. Press crouch when the train passes a water pipe. To get off the train, press jump when the horse is near.
This trophy can be obtained around Stage 17 as seen in the video using save states.
