Pocket Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle. It is a 2 × 2 × 2 cube, which means it is constructed by 8 mini-cubes. For a combination of 2 × 2 mini-cubes which sharing a whole cube face, you can twist it 90 degrees in clockwise or counterclockwise direction, this twist operation is called one twist step.
Considering all faces of mini-cubes, there will be totally 24 faces painted in 6 different colors (Indexed from 0), and there will be exactly 4 faces painted in each kind of color. If 4 mini-cubes' faces of same color rely on same large cube face, we can call the large cube face as a completed face.
Now giving you an color arrangement of all 24 faces from a scrambled Pocket Cube, please tell us the maximum possible number of completed faces in no more than N twist steps.
Index of each face is shown as below:
