for i in *.bz2; do tar xjf $i done

will bunzip all bz2 files in the current directory (or just one, if that's all there is...)

Not trying to confuse you, just demonstrating that things can be done in different ways...all the above will work as well as:
bzcat filename.tar.bz2 | tar xvf and,
bunzip filename.tar.bz2 | tar xvf

Yeh, I think you just downloaded source code right? So you have to compile it before it can be used. There should be a file called README or INSTALL in the top-level directory to tell you how.

generic instructions are:
./configure
make
make install (as root)

Well, is there any documentation at all? There must be something to tell you how to run it...

in the readme it says type ./mugen in the consol needless to say I have tried that

I have also cd'd into the mugen directory and and typed ./mugen and then it says I do not have permission to run it

try chmod +x mugen. Perhaps the bz2 file didn't uncompress while preserving permissions.
