I believe curl and flip are the only visual effects that are exclusive to
mobile (iOS only?), while the others should work.  I know for a fact that
push and wipe work fine, as I use these in mobile stacks, combined with
limiting transitions to defined rects:

  lock screen for visual effect in rect (rect of grc 1)

It would be easy enough for you to create a basic test stack and run it in
the simulator or on a device.
