Glitches as visual elements

Hi folks, I wonder if any of you know some (iOS) games that use (fake) glitches as visual elements. I'm working on one right now but haven't really found any other games that do it. Sword & Sworcery had some mild ones if I recall correctly.

I remember to have heard that Apple doesn't allow Apps which are faking an iPhone crash, but that's not necessarily a glitch - plus I haven't found anything about it in the Apple Review Guidelines.

Here is an example from FEZ, and another one.

There was a Mario clone a while back which was actually a pretty good platformer. Cant remember the title though.
