A derivative of instant insanity with 8 balls in a cubic configuration.

This puzzle is kind of interesting. But the stickyness of the balls and the force needed to spin some of them make the color decals come off. Easy to cheat because of that. There are 6 color dots on each of the 8 balls at the corners of the cube. The 6 decals are at the faces of what would be a cube if you could morph the spheres to cubes.
There are actually only 4 distinct colors. I think that if there were 6 distinct colors the puzzle would be easier to solve since only 1 orientation would make sense on each ball, but with only 4 colors there are several possible orientations to choose from and once you go to a second or third ball you usually have to backtrack. You can imagine how hard it is to get to the 8'th ball.
It's very hard to keep track of the attempts that you make so it's very hard to get to a solved position.
There are 15 official goals, such as each face must have all the same color, or each face must have all different colors.
