To unlock Old Skool Mode you have to complete the single player campaign. Then you can find it under Unlockable Potential from the main menu.

In Old Skool Mode, you start with 3 lives. You gain 1 life for finishing each level with a Decorated Totem (score of 60-69), and you gain 3 lives for getting a Golden Totem (score of 70, which you can only get by collecting all pickups with zero deaths on that level). You have to finish all 24 levels in the game with just those lives.

I recommend you go through and get the golden totems on all levels before you even attempt this. If you do that, you'll know the levels much better, and will stand a much better chance of finishing this mode. There's no way around it: you have to know the game very well in order to get this achievement.

I also recommend you take all the time you need (except in the sections that require you to be fast). There's no penalty for taking it slow, so take your time and figure out what your next move is going to be.

Below is my full run video for this mode. The individual levels are linked in the description. You can watch how I play a level, and then play it yourself, then pause the game and watch the next level, and so on.

If you need specific help on any section of any level, let me know.
