    Download the Minecraft demo via APK

    If your intent is to download Minecraft Pocket Edition for free, you can download the demo version on Android, via its APK file.



    Unfortunately, however, this demo version of Minecraft PE is no longer available via APK on third-party sites, such as APKMirror. You will therefore be forced to buy Minecraft on Android or iOS, which I will talk about in a later chapter, or rely on free alternatives, equally valid, which I will list in the following paragraphs.

    I warn you to pay attention to the APK files that still circulate on the web related to the demo version of Minecraft PE: you may still download the APK, but you may come across a modified version that could damage or compromise your Android smartphone or tablet.

    Alternatively, you can understand if the gaming experience in Minecraft PE satisfies your interest by watching one of the many videos made by fans of this video game on YouTube. In this way, you will be able to understand if this edition of Minecraft can be for you and, therefore, buy it.

    To do this, all you have to do is go to the YouTube website and type the terms in the search bar at the top minecraft pocket edition or minecraft on.

    Free Minecraft Alternatives

    Alternatively, since it is no longer possible download the Minecraft demo from the Android Play Store or the iOS App Store, I suggest you consider some free alternatives to the very famous Mojang title, as there are some really well done. I'll tell you more about it in the next paragraphs.



    Kiloblocks Lite (Android/iOS)

    Kiloblocks Lite is the free version of Kiloblocks, an excellent sandbox title for Android and iOS that is inspired by the creative mode of Minecraft. Compared to the paid one, which costs 4,49 euros, it is more limited, as it does not allow you to save or load your progress.

    The game has excellent 3D graphics, it is very fluid even on less performing devices from the hardware point of view, but everything related to the "survival" part of Minecraft is missing, since there are no enemies to face. It is still worth the download, however, as it is an interesting free alternative to Minecraft.

    To download it on Android start the Play Store, by pressing on its icon that you find on the home screen of your device or in the drawer (it is the icon with a colored flag), then use the text field at the top to type Kiloblocks Lite, and tap on the corresponding search result.

    Adesso, premium pulsating Install and wait for the automatic download to complete. At the end, start the game by pressing the button apri or the game icon that will have been added to your device's home screen.

    If you want to download Kiloblocks Lite su iOS, instead, once the title in question has been identified through the search engine of theApp Store (accessible by pressing the icon of a magnifying glass), presses on the app preview card and install it, pressing on Get.


    Next, start downloading the app via Face ID, Touch ID, or entering your iCloud account password. At the end of the automatic download, start the app by pressing on apri or by touching its icon that will have been added to the home screen of the device.


    The Blockheads (Android/iOS)

    The Blockheads is a different game than usual, since it is not a "pure" alternative to Minecraft, but as a sort of hybrid between the title Mojang and Terraria, another very famous open-world game in which you have to explore the surrounding environment, build objects and protect yourself from enemies.

    This title is available for Android and iPhone / iPad and features graphics similar to that of Minecraft but with a 2D-style view (horizontal scrolling, so to speak). It includes exploratory gameplay mechanics and also the possibility of making micro-transactions through in-app purchases, which allow you to speed up the construction processes of objects.

    To download it on Android, first locate the game in question via the Play Store (the icon of a colored flag on the home screen), then press on Install. At the end of the download, start the app by pressing on its icon added to the home screen of your device or on the button apri.

    Su iOS, on the other hand, after identifying the game in question through theApp Store, award-winning Get, then start downloading the app via Face ID, Touch ID or iCloud account password.


    At the end of the download and automatic installation, start the game by pressing on apri or on its icon that you find on the home screen of the device.

    Minetest (Android)

    Twink is perhaps one of the best "clones" of Minecraft. It is a completely free and open source game that follows many of the game mechanics of the Mojang title. In the mobile environment it is only available on Android, while on computer its compatibility is much wider: it can be downloaded for free, through its official website, on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10, macOS 10.10 (and later) and Linux.


    It is a very complete game, as it also supports online multiplayer game mode, mods and offers a practically infinite play area (equal to 62.0003 blocks). Furthermore, its development is constantly evolving and news is on the agenda. It is therefore a great free alternative to Minecraft, which I recommend you try.

    To download it on Android, locate the game card in the Play Store and press the button Install / Accetto to start the download. At the end of this automatic procedure, start the game by pressing the button apri or on its icon added to the home screen of the device.

    Block Craft 3D (Android/iOS)

    Block Craft 3D is another beautiful Minecraft clone available on Android and iOS. This is a free-to-play title, so you can download and play it for free. There are, however, some contents and features, such as the possibility of flying your own character, which are instead paid, as they can be unlocked through completely optional in-app purchases.

    The aim of this game is to build various objects and buildings to bring your village to life and make it thrive as much as possible. The graphics are in 3D and are “pixelated” like that of Minecraft; moreover, the game is very fluid even on older Apple devices.

    If you are interested in Block Craft 3D, you can download it at Android by opening the Play Store and typing the name of the app into the search engine. From the search results, select the corresponding one and press the button Install. At the end of this procedure, to start the game, press on apri or use its icon on the home screen.

    To download it on iOS, locate this video game in the App Store, then start the download by pressing the button Get. To confirm the automatic download, use Face ID, Touch ID or type in your iCloud account password.

    Purchase Minecraft on Android and iOS

    If, after trying the free alternatives for Android and iOS or after evaluating Minecraft PE through the demo or videos on YouTube, you have decided to buy the game, the instructions below will be useful for you to make the purchase.

    If in doubt or for more details on how to purchase a game on Android through the Play Store or on iOS through theApp Store, refer to my guide on how to buy on Google Play or the one in which I explain how to make purchases on the App Store.

    If you use a smartphone or tablet Android, you can download the game from the Play Store by paying 6,99 euros. If, on the other hand, you have a iPhone / iPad, you can buy Minecraft from the App Store at a price of 7,99 euros. Finally, if you have a smartphone with an operating system 10 Windows Mobile, you can buy the game from the Windows Store for 6,99 euros.

    Once you have purchased the game on the device of your choice, to download Minecraft, all you have to do is follow the standard download procedures for any app or game, by pressing the installation button in the Android Play Store or the iOS App Store . If you have any doubts or problems, refer to the directions I gave you in my guide on how to download apps.

    Other ways to play Minecraft for free

    If the solutions that I have indicated to you in the previous chapters do not meet your needs, in case you do not want to buy Minecraft PE, I suggest other ways to play Minecraft for free, by switching platforms. For example, from your computer, using any web browser, you will be able to play Minecraft Classic, an edition of Minecraft that represents the first 2009 version of this video game.

    For that reason, Minecraft Classic in no way reflects the current Minecraft gameplay experience currently released, but it can be a good one, considering you can play online alongside your friends (up to nine).

    If you are interested in Minecraft Classic, connected to its web page and follow the simple instructions you see on the screen. If you want to know more about this topic, I suggest you consult my guide on how to download Minecraft for free, in which I also explained how to download the free trial version of this video game on both PC and console.
