Dayshot: Monument Valley is a pretty great iOS game. It's so great, in fact, that it inspired a pretty great Minecraft map to go with it, and it does invoke the game's visuals quite well (that is, until you go first-person, like you tend to do in Minecraft).
Dayshot: Skywind, part of the Elder Scrolls Renewal project, aims to recreate Morrowind in Skyrim's engine. It has been in development since 2012 and probably won't be ready for a while.
