Rotary engines work in a different way.

In a rotary engine, burning fuel spins a rotor that turns the shaft. 



Wankel engines and gas turbines are rotary engines.
The Wankel radial engine is a fascinating motor that features a very clever rearrangment of the four elements of the Otto cycle.
It was developed by Felix Wankel in the 1950s

Both piston engines and rotary engines have a fuel system, an ignition system, a lubrication system, and a cooling system.
