I don't think all full screen games can be minimised in the OSX, if you really need to access the rest of the computer while you're running the game then you can maybe run the game windowed if it supports it?

thats what I do for World of Warcraft, I haven't found a way to minimize it, but I can just press Command+Enter to make it go to a Window, then just open up other apps over it.
