Basically, the combat menu behaves like a ring: swipe directly down (not diagonally) on the selected option (the larger one) to move to the option above it. Tap once, and you'll either take action (in which case you'll have to tap on a target) or see a second level menu. This menu behaves like all the other menus in the game: when you swipe directly down on the selected option, you move to the option below
. You can also swipe horizontally on the selected option to access a second sub-category. Tap once on the selected option to activate it. If you make a mistake, tap on the character portrait to go back one step.
For example: in Killian's turn, you can swipe the "ring" to select Skills (icon looks like the top of a crooked staff). On the secondary menu, you can swipe up or down to select one of the visible options (usually healing spells) or swipe once horizontally to access his Unique Abilities (which are combat skills). Tap on the selected option to activated it.
Hope that makes sense. Once you get used to it, you won't even think about it.
