Magic Cube

The object of this puzzle is to make a jumbled cube have faces of one color each. A move rotates any block of nine cubes by 90° in either direction.
Choose a 3×3 block to turn by the color of the center of a face. The dashed arrow shows in which direction it will turn. Click "OK" to turn the cube. Click "random" to have more fun, and choose the second style of magic cube to make the puzzle harder.
If you are confused by the second style of magic cube, change it to the normal style. If you are struggling to restore the magic cube to faces with one color each, press "undo" or "restart".
