Minecraft is insanely popular, even though it doesn’t have mind-blowing graphics like most of the top games nowadays. Released by Mojang in 2011 and purchased by Microsoft three years later, Minecraft comes in various versions, and it’s destined to entertain the lives of many gamers.
Today we’ll be talking about Minecraft PE (Pocket Edition), the mobile version of the notorious game. Some users have been complaining about Minecraft PE crashing on their devices, and we will shed some light on why this phenomenon occurs and how it can be fixed.
If you could play the game previously
The explanation can be that your device had an update, and that can mess up the game by not allowing it to start anymore. Simply by going back to a previous version can fix the issue. Also, You can choose to reinstall the game.
Game not compatible with your device
You may have an old phone (well, we all started somewhere), or it just doesn’t meet the system requirements of the game. You need a minimum of 2GB of RAM for an optimum experience, and the processor has to be manufactured and released after 2012.
Mods or patches can stop the game
They’re not saying for nothing that modding a game and/or installing a modded game comes at your own risk. Mods and patches are dangerous for several reasons, and one of them is that they can ruin your whole game and make it not starting at all. Therefore, you should get rid of the mods and patches and try to run the clean version of the game. Remember: it may be not worth risking because nothing beats the original, even at the worst game.
These are some of the most common reasons why Minecraft Pocket Edition keeps crashing. The issue has to go simply because Minecraft games are awesome and worth playing.
