X-COM: UFO Defense, also known as UFO: Enemy Unknown, is a turn-based tactical combat game with elements of global strategy, resource management, RPG, and even a bit of arcade. Intercept and shoot down UFOs, capture aliens, protect cities from acts of terror, and study your enemies to fight them better.
Pictured here is some very early concept art of the game's Battlescape interface found in an early demo of the game! Most of the buttons roughly line up with commands from the final game, although the "2D/3D" button is interesting and may have been to switch between an isometric and flat 2D view somewhat like Laser Squad's firing mode. In fact, it might even be possible that this image is from the Laser Squad 2 period of development (it has 256 colours so can't be from an Atari ST game).
