There are two steps involved to rescue each Mikla. First you must find and destroy the Sol tower in the stage, and only then will the Mikla appear. The Sol towers are hidden in each stage and look like a small pyramid shape on the ground. In a couple stages, they are hidden behind a group of trees. To get the Sol tower to rise out of the ground, you need to hover your ship over it for a few seconds. Once the tower rises, you need to destroy it and the Mikla will appear in the stage soon after, which looks like a little blue animal.

As the achievement states, it needs to be done in xbox 360 mode and in stages 2-1 thru 2-7. Any difficulty can be used, even practice mode, in which the enemies don't even shoot bullets so you don't have to worry as much about dying. You also will get the achievement for destroying all Sol towers.

You do not have to worry about getting them in order or even all in one play through. You can try to get as many as you can in your first run through and then go back and get what you missed in practice mode.

Here is a written guide of where each tower and Mikla are located along with a video that should make them relatively easy to find:

Stage 1: The Sol tower is right next to where "L02" is painted on the ground. The Mikla is right after and is hard to miss.

Stage 2: The Sol tower is on left of screen between waterfall and large bridge that spans level. The Mikla appears a bit further up right before the boss battle. The screen will begin to move fast at this point, but as long as your ship is lined up right in the middle of the screen, you will run right into it.

Stage 3: The Sol tower is after when you fight the enemies on the large bridge you rotate around. When land appears again, the tower will be hidden behind a tree on the left. The Mikla is right after on top of one of he garages the tanks are coming out of.

Stage 4: The Sol tower is once again hidden behind a tree that is on a triangle shaped land mass on the right of the screen. The Mikla is easy to spot soon after sitting between the buildings.

Stage 5: The Sol tower is pretty hard to see in this stage. You will come to a forked crack in the rocks on the right of the screen. The top of the tower can be barely seen by some tire tracks near this crack. The Mikla is again hard to miss soon after on the left side of this same crack.

Stage 6: The Sol tower is located right in the middle of the large satellite looking structure you come to later in the level. The only hard part is that the screen will be moving pretty fast at this point so you need to be ready to move up and hover over the spot right away in order to have time to destroy it. Will help to have the blue laser weapon for this one which does the most focused damage. The Mikla is again easy to see soon after sitting on another part of the structure.

Stage 7: The Sol tower is in middle of screen right after you encounter the large stealth looking ship. The Mikla is a bit further up right in the middle of screen again.
