Zoda has a weakness when he's 1 diagonal away since he can't attack diagonally. He has to come to the adjacent square, in which you go diagonal again. As long as you have a 2x2 and control it well it's not too bad.

Some reason I can't get Search and Destroy to pop for me. Any reason for that? Is there another hidden Minie somewhere that I'm not aware of? (Besides the one that leads to the healing room just before the Maxie fight).
