[Solved] Recognition of certain hand gestures (on mobile)?

I'm thinking of creating a mobile game for Android/iOS.
Is it possible for GameMaker to recognize specific hand gestures on a touchpad?

Like, draw a circle to attack; draw a square to defend (regardless of the size)?
Sidenote: Or even better, a larger circle deals higher damage, but takes longer to cast. (assuming, size recognition is a possibility)
Or is it only limited to 'tap to attack' and 'hold to defend'?

It's possible, but you'll need to add some logic to it.

The gesture functions allow you to detect dragging or rotating start/end and offsets; it's up to you to use that data to judge whether it's a circle, and how large it is.
Ooo! GMS 2 sure has plenty of fun functions owo
I did not know this since I've only searched device input methods of GMS 1.4

Thank you very much~
