Minecraft is super popular and has been for while, but as new title Brick Force proves, guns can make any game better. Brick Force takes all the best parts of Minecraft -- namely the customizable levels, resource management and online collaboration. However, instead of building environments to explore, Brick Force allows users to build online battlefields with their friends. Once the battlefields are made, users can invite the online community to try their levels out.

The highest-rated levels among the Brick Force community reward their creators with in-game currency to encourage them to keep building their levels. The game even features a mode called "Build and Destroy," which has two teams building half the map each, and neither side can see what the other is doing. Once the level is complete, both sides must explore enemy territory that changes in every game played. Stats for DIY Craftable Shooting Games Trending: Older & Chilly
