Ah ok, but at least please explain here in forum a bit of game mechanics and why some pieces can be erased and others not.

Ah, now makes sense and we know how to do. A bit hard when things pile but fun when we try to click in desperation an out-of-box falling piece. Nice gameplay concept :)

The rules weren't very well explained, but once I got into it it was pretty interesting. Maybe some nice strategic elements can be worked in?

I like it! I think you can do things to make the game play more varied however. Just as an offhand suggestion: what about blocks that, when erased, do various things? You could have a "bomb block", "time slowed block", or "make blocks heavier-block." You get the idea. If a block makes a passive change to the game have timers on the side of when they're going to wear off. You can then form strategies (e.g. you wouldn't normally use a bomb block, but if all blocks are heavier they're not going to go flying everywhere, so only use them while "blocks are heavier" passive change is active.)

The key to interesting gameplay is giving the player a lot of choices which end up interacting in different and interesting ways every time they play. Currently the only choice in your game is to "remove big blocks generally near the edges."

To expand on ninwa's input, how about different geometric shapes? You could generate triangular, circular and perhaps even polygonal shapes to mix things up a little. Of course, you should experiment alot if you decide to implement something like this as I imagine it would drastically alter the gameplay.
