Well, there are several factors here I think:

a) Games often aren't optimized for OS X when they are ported from windows, so even higher-power macs have difficulties, nothing much you can do about that.

b) I think you're right in assuming that the heat is causing the slowdown after a certain amount of time - maybe try using your Powerbook with something like Griffin's iCurve. It's basically a stand for a laptop that has the benefit of allowing air to reach the bottom surface of the powerbook which improves the cooling process.

c) Also check that you have no unnecessary apps on in the background.
