It's possible to create simple console games (tetris, tic tac toe) without using any graphics libraries. You could also create games using the Window's GDI, that doesn't require any other libraries to be installed. Of course it's still using libraries, you just don't need to install them.

It really is to your benefit to learn how to install and use libraries though. Try looking for a tutorial on installing Allegro, should help.

Make sure that you have the lastest dev-c++ in the older versions like the one I have in my other computer the update utility won't work. If all fails you can get the pre-built library from this page
