Please use Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar (U). I thought Thunder Force IV (E) will work properly, but score and some other values appear to be buggy.

There is a track similiar in sound to "Metal Squad", called "Omake 5", you gain access to in the menu, after finishing the game. You need to listen to it for awhile to unlock this achievement.
