Should this be backwards compatible? (Or backwardly compatible?)

I've been searching the net for backward compatible, backwards compatible,
and backwardly compatible. The most common usage seems to be the first:
backward compatible.

Is it always acceptable simply to say that something is "backward
compatible" with something else?
