Here's a cool looking game for Android that has some unique ideas. It's called "Spellcrafter" and it is basically a fantasy RPG with turn-based tactical combat similar to that found in XCOM. What sets this game apart is that the spells in the game feature gesture-based controls.

On top of that, the game is broken up into three separate acts which lets you control things from three different perspectives. Here's a quote with the game description from the Play Store,

Spellcrafter is an RPG game with deep tactical turn-based combat and a unique spell casting system. Explore the magical world, collect gold, interact with NPCs, take quests and make moral choices! Recruit heroes, assemble and summon powerful troops and send them into battle!

The unique feature of Spellcrafter is the spell casting system. The game recognizes the sign you draw on the screen and automatically chooses the appropriate spell from the spellbook. If you don’t remember the correct sign you are able to consult the spellbook, but beware! Reaching for the spellbook takes additional time and the quicker you cast your spell, the more powerful it will be!

The game is divided into 3 acts. Each of them tells a part from a compelling and magical story about the nature of reality, power and morality. You are able to choose from three races and play as human, control necromancer forces or fight for the elves. Each act features 3 levels with a different setting.

Spellcrafter is a Premium Game (no IAPs, no F2P mechanics).

The best part is that their are no in game purchases or ads. You simply pay your $2.99 and the game is yours. Here's a link to check it out: Spellcrafter - Android Apps on Google Play
