Minecraft Pocket Edition Alpha Versions : Mojang, Microsoft : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive (2023)

A collection of unmodified early Minecraft Pocket Edition versions from before its release. Versions are still being added to this. If you believe you have any unmodified MCPE versions from its alpha period, please send them to me at Arctic Circle System#9055 on Discord. Especiallyif you have a copy from the Samsung Galaxy Apps store (not a copy from Google Play that is installed to a Samsung Galaxy device).

Special thanks to MCNazar, /bin/cat, Moresteck, and others from Omniarchive for helping us with this archive!

IMPORTANT NOTE:Many particularly early versions of the game will not work on newer devices and Android emulators based on newer versions of Android. Bear in mind that this is legacy software. No, we don't know how to get them working.

Bro, people be dumb asf. Why someone would program a bot to write random stuff and include links to sites that aren't even trying to get ya, is beyond me.

I'll be high on weed and leave random comments about pooping, but at least it's comical.

I blame the Indians, the Asian kind.

Thank you so much for uploading this, especially the old versions. I started playing minecraft almost 10 years ago on my ipod, its great to be able to replay the exact version I used to.

For anyone wondering, at least some of these old versions work on bluestacks. The controls aren't the best though.

I've been using this archive for about a year now with getting old versions of MCPE, and it works great! I am using Android x86 right now and all of the x86 versions on here don't have full keyboard and mouse support, and when I try to use the latest version from the Play Store, the textures are all weird, is there an old version that works fully with computer?

Some fossil version of Minecraft is not working. Like, I wanted to install v0.1.0 but I couldn't install it to Android 10. Is there any possible way for compatibility for that? Probably APK's has no bug the problem is my device is the latest Android.

Thanks so much, for the longest time the oldest version of minecraft pocket edition i could play was one on an old tablet i found at a garage sale. To answer someone's question, Minecraft apks don't like bluestacks. I have had more luck with these apks on new android devices than bluestacks.

Subject: Really Nostalgic But Definitely Not Perfect

I Can Definitely say that these are good enough but don't even try Bluestacks because its an absolute train wreck don't even try to install 0.13+ if you try to install 4.0-0.12.1 Uninstall Minecraft close Bluestacks and re-open it, also if it doesn't want to Uninstall close Bluestacks and re-open it. 0.10.0-0.11.1-2 don't work at all and 1.0-3.0 don't work either, i don care about those though cause this is common with older versions of Minecraft. Try to fix 1.0-3.0 or 0.10.0-0.11.1-2 though it would be nice.

Hello, I got these a few weeks ago but when I try to use them (I'm using Bluestacks to install the APKs) most of them either fail to download or they successfully install but when you try to open them they crash.
