How to get 3,000,000 feet without getting the 5 hour medal:
Obviously you need all upgrades. You will need at LEAST 35-40 nukes.
1. Fire cannon around 40 or so degrees at full power.
2. Once the turtle reaches its max height for that jump, use the rocket. (should be around 1740 height)
3. Keep using nukes until the turtle comes to the middle of the screen instead of being at the right.
4. Once the turtle is in the middle of the screen horizontally, shoot it immediately once it comes down from being in space. Do not let it bounce.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you are out of ammo and you should reach 3,000,000.
On my first try doing this method I got just about 3,000,000 after my 9th bullet, so you have room for error. How far the turtle is horizontally on the screen represents how fast he is going. You may get unlucky and hit a couple spikes but all you can do is just try again.
