Do I need Allegro to run some games?

I've tried installing "Search and Rescue" as well as "Matrem" and after apt-get install when I type either "searchandrescue" or "matrem" at the command line neither of them open up. I'm running Debian and just wondering if there's something else I need to run these games.. Also, any cool game recomendations would be very nice...

Well ... if they required allegro apt-get should have a) told you
so or b) gone and installed it ...

To find out why they're not running locate the actual executable,
and try to run them from a shell with the full path.

What error message do you get when you try to run those games?
