I'm looking for a descriptive and relatively intuitive name for this UI element you very often find in game's settings screens. It's a list of options (labels) that you can horizontally run through and that usually convey a "from lower to higher" or "from worse to better" feeling when going from left to right.
A bit of Googling using terms such as
Horizontal Carousel etc. leads to the realization that this UI element is simply a...
.. albeit with a few changes: no sliding animation, no looping, and no carousel slide marker
The UI element seems to take other forms as well:
Number pickers with horizontal scroll view
Spinner/Dial Picker (iOS)
