Display child categories like articles in categories

I have several categories with child categories. Not all categories are filled with articles. My goal is to display all child categories on a page, when i click the link to the parent category in the menu. I'd like to display the child categories like it is possible to do with the articels within a category.

E.g.: I have a parent category like GAME. In this category i have the child categories BEAST HORDE and HUMAN LEGION. In the category BEAST HORDE there are several sub-child-categories like BUILDINGS, ITEMS, UNITS and WEAPONS. Same goes for the category HUMAN LEGION.

Now i want to put a link BEAST HORDE(with the menu manager) in a menu block on the sidebar of my site, which gives me an overview of all subcategories listed. In this case this should be: BUILDINGS, ITEMS, UNITS and WEAPONS. I want to have a similar layout like there is for the articles on the edit article category page.

To explain what i want to do:

Instead of articles i want to show the child categories in a similar way. Is there any way to do so? Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
